(1989) Every October, the Lord of the Miracles procession in Lima, Peru attracts hundreds of thousands of the faithful. The devotion commemorates an image of Christ painted on a wall by a black slave in the 17th century. When an earthquake struck, the surrounding buildings collapsed, but the image of Christ was untouched. Religion News Service file photo by Alejandro Balaguer
