Once the prayer has been answered, the believer will make a pilgrimage to the relevant site or church with the milagro, which they would leave there as a sign of devotion. In Mexico this process is referred to as a “Manda” .
Milagros are often carried for good luck and protection or as a reminder of gratitude - they make beautiful gifts and are special pieces to have in your home.
