Ozernoye is the name of a village located in northern Kazakhstan where the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace is located, the only Marian shrine in Central Asia and where Our Lady is credited with a miracle that saved the lives of numerous people.
In a statement to EWTN, Father Mariusz Stawasz, the shrine’s rector, explained that in that place during World War II, people prayed for the intercession of the Virgin Mary to end the famine.
It was on March 25, 1941, when the miracle occurred. Suddenly, temperatures rose and the snow melted, forming a large lake around the village of Ozernoye.
