Our Lady of the Gate of Dawn.

“Of the nine gates that were once part of the defensive walls encircling the old, medieval city of Vilnius, only one remains. Built between 1503 and 1522, the Gate of Dawn is one of Vilnius’ most important religious, historical, and cultural monuments. It owes its significance to the fact that the chapel built over its arch is home to the icon of the “Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy” – also known as “Our Lady of the Gate of Dawn”
This Gate was also to have a significant connection to Sister Faustina and her visions of the Divine Mercy. Read the entire article HERE at Swords of Truth.
