Why Puerto Rico?
Devotion to Our Lady of Divine Providence began in Italy, but is rooted in the scriptural account of the wedding at Cana. Devotion spread to Spain and when Spanish Bishop, Gil Esteve, was named Bishop of Puerto Rico in 1848, he found the state of the Church in Puerto Rico to be pretty rough. He brought devotion to Our Lady of Divine Providence to the island and the whole situation there improved. Pope St. Paul VI declared Our Lady of Divine Providence the patroness of Puerto Rico in 1969.
