2012 Calendar for Marian Jubilee at the National Sanctuary of El Cobre, near Santiago de Cuba

January 2012:  Our Lady Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre is an inextricable part of the soul of  our people in Cuba (and abroad), that is the feeling that our veterans from the Cuban War of Independence felt and expressed when they offered one of the national flags which accompanied them during the struggles for the freedom of Cuba.  The same feeling has also been expressed by other generations who, from the inside and outside of Cuba, have taken offerings to Our Lady Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre, insignias from various provinces in Cuba and a treasure chest containing the vote of faith and devotion from many Cubans who live abroad and worship from a distance the blessed Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre.
