“Special Honor for Our Lady of Grace”

Santuario Madonna delle Grazie
Reviewed October 29, 2016

We made a brief stop at the Church of St. John which houses the Our Lady of Grace. The church was bombed in 1918. The front of the church was damaged causing the statue of Our Lady to fall down from its pedestal. It was found the next day undamaged and locals considered this to be a miracle. It is now located in a special alcove in the Church of St. John.

Piove di Sacco is a 50 minute train ride from Venice, 20 minute from Padua, but it is a very pleasant ride, and worth a visit to the Sanctuary of this beautiful church dating back to the 1400's. Churches in Italy are many, but this one has the added benefit of a charming cloister, and a beautiful painting of the madonna and child from painter Giovanni Bellini. The original is inside in a niche sanctuary, and there is also a reproduction inside. According to local lore, the madonna sanctuary is attributed with the ability to work miracles, and the church does have instructions for a special Novena to the Madonna Delle Grazie. Another bit of history, poet Diego Valeri and his brother, the Belle Epoque painter Ugo Valeri were both born here, and this was a favorite haunt of the family.
