This year was a special one for the city of Luxembourg. 350 years ago, on October 10, 1666, Mary, Mother of Jesus, Comforter of the Afflicted, was elected the patroness of the city of Luxembourg. Twelve years later, she became the patroness of the whole country. Since the Octave of Our Lady of Luxembourg earlier this year, there have been various religious celebrations which officially ended today with a mass celebrated at the Cathédrale Notre-Dame. Among the attendees were two ladies of the Grand Ducal Family: Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie.

The Catholic Church of Luxembourg has way more pictures of the event.
