A title given to the miraculous picture of the Madonna at Genazzano, honored particularly in the Order of Saint Augustine. The devotion arose from the legend that the Madonna of Genazzano was miraculously transported from Albania into Italy, accompanying across the Adriatic two Christians who fled from the Muslim invasion. It rested in the Augustinian Church, 1467. The feast was instituted by Benedict XIII in 1727, but is not in the universal calendar. Pope Leo XIII added the title “Mother of Good Counsel” to the Litany of Loreto.
