This is the first known Italian rendition of the popular Irish song “Our Lady of Knock”. We will publish “Our Lady of Knock” in Italian on the day the 8th of December in memory of the Irish bishops whom in the year 1650 on the 8th of December proclaimed Our Blessed Virgin Mother Mary as Queen of Ireland. This was done in a former Cathedral at Loughrea in Co. Galway in front of the surviving image of the Irish Madonna now housed in the town of Gyor in Hungary. The Italian version of “Our Lady of Knock” has been translated by a team of Irish and Italian Catholics with the blessing of Dana Rosemary Scallon and her husband. We’d like to acknowledge the help of friends Francesca from Sardinia, and two Italian seminarians by the name of Alberto from Verona and Alberto of Turin who corrected grammar errors as well as improving the original draft attempts. We would like to thank seminarian Davide of Arezzo who sang the rendition in the video to be published. All three seminarians are from the North of Italy. We all studied together in seminary, having taken a vow to Our Lady during our formation. We’d like to also acknowledge our friends in Turin, Kevin from Ireland with his Italian wife Roberta and their two Italian Irish sons whom we met on our mission September in 2021. This Italian video was produced over the summer of 2022, with the help of two Irish women, Heidi and Lisa who did some on the spot film shots with mobile phones in August around the time of the novena to Our Lady of Knock. It is hoped that from this Italian rendition, a Spanish interpretation maybe spawned for what is a great song and rightly fitting in honour of the Queen of Ireland, Our lady of Knock, at the international shrine in Mayo. The Italian song “Madonna di Knock” is geared towards making more explicit to an Italian audience the history of the apparition at Knock that happened in Ireland in 1879. We desire to make Our Irish Queen more universally accessible to a Catholic audience further afield, now that the Shrine of Knock enjoys international recognition by the Universal Catholic Church, thanks to Pope Francis who elevated the shrine to international status on the feast of St. Joseph, March 2021.
