Beautiful FDC just received from Lithuania.
It's a commemorative FDC - August 30, 2008 - to celebrate 400 years from the Appearence of The Virgin Mary in Siluva.
Siluva (known as Samogitia) is a small village, w. about 1,000 inh., located in Western Lithuania.
The devotion to Our Lady of Siluva was surppressed hundreds of years.
Throughout its turbulent history, Siluva has remained the spiritual center of catholic faithful from the whole Lithuania.
Pope John Paul II made a special pilgrimage while visiting Lithuania in 1993.
Thank you very much, Einius!
