Divine Shepherdess Procession in Venezuela Draws 2.7 Million

Adolfo Pereira
Millions of people gathered in the streets of Barquisimeto in Lara state, Venezuela, to accompany the Divine Shepherdess in a Jan. 14, 2024, procession.

Devotion traces back to 1703 in Seville, Spain, when a Capuchin friar saw the Virgin Mary dressed as a shepherdess holding a shepherd’s crook.
