Devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help was born on the island of Crete. This explains the Byzantine influence one notices in its pictures.
The devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help was spread by the Redemptorist priests. It is a very beautiful expression since it expresses Our Lady's invariable mercy toward us.
Perpetual help means an assistance, an act of mercy, an act of uninterrupted piety that never ceases toward us. This assistance will not cease anywhere, any time or for any reason. That is, even if a person is in the worst possible situation, Our Lady always will help one who prays to her.
