ABC News / Reuters Peru, in Purple, Venerates 'Lord of the Miracles': "For more than 350 years, an oil painting of the so-called Lord of the Miracles -- also known as the Lord of the Earthquakes -- has been paraded through the streets of Lima in October, clogging the choked capital's traffic for hours, in one of the biggest religious processions in Latin America. Lima began its veneration in the 17th century after a wall painted with an image of Christ survived huge earthquakes that killed thousands of people. Peruvians attribute miraculous powers to the image, revered as the protector of the city."
