COSTA RICA
   
Our Lady of the AngelsThe image of Our Lady of the Angels is very small, only about three inches high. "La Negrita" (the little black one) as the people of Costa Rica affectionately call her, was solemnly crowned in 1926 and in 1935, Pope Pius XI declared the beautiful shrine of the Queen of Angels a Basilica.
