The first in this series is the Shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Ta’ Pinu – Gozo, Malta, which has been a place of veneration since 1545, when it was reported to have been rebuilt. This important shrine was visited by two popes — by St Pope John Paul II on 26 May 1900 and on 18 April 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI.
