On February 2 of each year the Candelora Festival is celebrated. (The blessing of the candles 40 days after Jesus birth).
According to tradition it is precisely that day that the couple of boys condemned to death for their love was miraculously saved by the Mother of God.
Just on this date the feminists and the LGBT + community reaches Montevergine to thank and praise the Madonna with songs and dances.
The impression is that the sanctuary tolerates this event. The miracle of the Madonna di Montevergine took place in 1256 in unsuspected times, but still today clashes with the reality of the hierarchy.
