Default Miraculous image of our Blessed Mother



Beautiful, isn't she?

From Spirit Daily:

POPE'S QUIET DEVOTION TO MARY MAY HAVE ROOTS IN A MIRACULOUS IMAGE

As the month of Mary begins it's interesting to note in a book by the Pope's brother that Benedict XVI had a lifelong attachment to the Blessed Mother.

It started at a shrine in a town called Absam, which is near Innsbruck, Austria.

As the book, My Brother the Pope, explains, "In it pilgrims venerate an image of Mary that is quite different from the Black Madonna of Czestochowa in Poland, or any other miraculous image of the Mother of God in one of the many places of pilgrimage in old Europe.

"For it is the only one in the Old World that claims to be 'not made by human hands' and is thus comparable only to the tilma in Guadalupe, Mexico.

"How it came to be is in any case a riddle that science to this day cannot answer."

I seem to remember learning something years ago about a statue of Mary that was also claimed to be "not made by human hands." Perhaps the claim is too dubious to count, though.

Is it approved by the Church? I've searched but cannot find any declarations on this one.
