A brief history of the Feast of Senhor Santo Cristo

The beginning of this devotion started sometime around the 15th century when two Clarisse nuns were sent to Rome to request special permission and blessing from Pope Clement VII to open their very first convent in the Azores. He granted them the permission and sent them home with a special gift – an artistic torso of Jesus carved in wood, which will forever be known to the Azores as Senhor Santo Cristo dos Milagres, Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Miracles. This image would remain in the possession of the Clarisse Sisters more
