Mary is the mildness of the hereafter. She is the faith in the power of love to correct injustice. This is why her shrines on this Earth are called sanctuaries. The network of those sanctuaries is like a reflection of heavenly constellations. Croatia has an ancient network of its own, which has been visited by pilgrims for centuries. Croatian Post has decided to share the images of the most important of those shrines with the world by creating a series of stamps dedicated to this part of our spiritual and artistic heritage, as well as some of our greatest achievements in painting. The paintings and statues of Mary which are worshipped in those shrines have shared the trying history of its people, so they also stand witness to their difficult and persistent survival on the Croatian soil.
