Our Lady of La Leche has been a source
of inspiration ever since the time of the Nativity. She is the symbol of the
Blessed Virgin Mary nursing the Baby Jesus at her breast.
In Bethlehem where our Lord was born, the Milk Grotto stands to honor this image of our Lady of La Leche. Another replica symbolizing the Divine Maternity is enshrined at the Mission of Nombre de Dios in Florida, U.S.A.
In Metro Manila, Philippines, this icon and its corresponding name was virtually unknown. A group of Marian devotees, organizing themselves to form the Our Lady of La Leche Movement undertook its spiritual propagation on September 2000.
