History of the Virgin "La Chinita"

Chiquinquirá is, according to Rosell says David Belloso, an Indian language word which means to bind water, foggy, muddy and unpleasant. This is the name of our patron saint, which, according to the author recounts above, reached the shores of Lake Maracaibo following a special route. Let the words of Don David Chinita history:
"A splendid sun falls on the polished surface of Coquivacoa and aquamarine paint color rays passing wave in its sway eternal she travels on a small table that perhaps fell off a transatlantic ship or ship any of which make their traveling above the liquid surface, because the lake or the sea does not make their way: they are cut from the edge of the bows of ships and sailors leave contrails that merge into its vastness, the small table, toy of the waves will print their undulations, is getting closer each time to the banks where the washerwomen do their job.
One of them see coming the table, and reached her in his hands thinks it would own to cover the jar in your home contains the drinking water as well as to set up that can cover the container to be used to draw water either for drinking or fill alcarrazas (porous clay pots) where he began to cool water.
The water was left to pack the can slipped over the top of the jar and the water is slowly discovering a painting, walking time, is becoming blurred figure to be the features of an image of the Virgin Mary, the woman who made the discovery, noticing this circumstance, the former site removed and hung on the wall in order to revere and pray daily.
The planchette continued to occupy the new site on Tuesday, November 18, 1709, being the woman grinding cocoa felt at the site where the picture hung a knock sounded, which at first ignored, moments after repeated the same shock and repeated a third time playing, which made her face back to the place and then realized that full draw the image of Our Lady of the Rosary of Chiquinquirá equal to that venerated the people of his name in Colombia and among the surprise and astonishment, took to the streets shouting, miracle, miracle, which attracted the neighbors and people circulating around the site, realizing that the picture still was illuminated.
Among that crowd, several people knew the history of the painting, had seen him in a blur and now the three images presented fully drawn on the table itself illuminated by the light that formed the word miracle that he had come from the lips of women in excited and admiring way.
The explosion of faith that led to the renewal of the picture of Our Lady of the Rosary in Maracaibo Chiquinquirá had the following projections:
- November 18, the date of renewal, is a holiday for the people of Zulia without any civil or ecclesiastical law has decreed.
- The house where the miracle took place has become a shrine, where he often celebrated the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
- The street where the house was taken from that moment the name of Calle El Milagro.
- The table looks today at the altar of the Basilica dedicated to the advocation of the Virgin, who was solemnly crowned on November 18, 1942.
Only the name of the washer was in the dark and she did not bother to go down to posterity, because God uses the humble to realize their designs. The washerwoman was that pearl shell that looks locked in the religious spirit of the people of Zulia. "
