HISTORY OF Madovtvta del Socco00o di Sciacca In the year of our Lord 1300, an Augustinian monk by the name of Nicolo Bruno lay ill in bed with severe fe- vers and a broken neck. One night he received a vision of a woman of radiant beauty, who said to him, "I am The Madonna del Soccorso di Sciacca (The Lady of Help of Sciacca). I have come to your town of Sciacca to aid and assist the people." She then told him to get up from bed and spread her message to the people of the town. Miraculously the monk rose from his bed free from fever and healed of a broken neck. Nicolo Bruno spent the rest of his years telling his story and spreading the message of the Blessed Virgin. Nicolo Bruno was not with- out his critics however, many attributed his 'vision' to his high fevers. No one could explain though the mi- raculous healing of his bro- ken neck. As the peoples acceptance of this story grew their devotion to the Ma- donna also grew, as a result more miracles were attrib- uted to the Blessed Lady. One such miracle took place when a six-year-old boy mis- behaved for his mother. The boy, like most six-year-olds, was full of energy and getting on his mother's nerves. In a rage, the mother shouted to her son "go to the devil you little pest." Suddenly the devil appeared and grabbed the boy. The mother realiz- ing what she had done and truly sorry called on the Ma- donna del Soccorso to rescue her son from the hands of Satan. Miraculously the Ma- donna del Soccorso dressed in a white and gold robe and carrying a wooden club appeared.
