It is known that the Lord of Miracles has faithful followers throughout the country of Mexico, South America and the United States. Throughout the celebrations more than 70 thousand visitors come to be counted. The image belonged to the temple of San Juan Parangaricutiro, the town that buried the Paricutin Volcano in its eruption in the middle of the last century.
