Since 1732 the town Sastin in Slovakia has belonged to the frequently visited Marian sites of pilgrimage from the Moravian-Silesian territory. One of the motivating incentives to undertake pilgrimages was the fact that the Pieta of the Sastin Virgin Mary of the Seven Sorrows was considered to be Madonna who makes miracles. After all, there are many evidences to support this fact in the form of manuscripts and printed miracle books dating back to the 1732-1794. Based on the excerpts from these sources, it is apparent that the tradition of pilgrimages to the Sastin Virgin from the Moravia-Silesian borderland is still alive lasting more than 275 years almost without interruption even in the politically unfavourable period of the second half of the 20th century, although there was a significant shift in the mental experience of miraculous hearings.
