The series of embroidery kits inspired by the Litanies of Loreto

Inspired by Oriental and Latin traditions, the Litany of Loreto was born in Loreto (Italy) in the 16th century. The Litany of Loreto is a set of invocations to the Virgin that are usually recited after the rosary and emphasize a quality of soul or action of the Mother of God.


Mary’s Immaculate Conception was likened to a dazzling dawn that heralded salvation:

“In the ‘night’ of the coming,

Mary began to shine like a true ‘morning star’.”

(John Paul II, Encyclical The Mother of the Redeemer §3)
