ENLithuania is being called the Land of Mary (Term AfnnoMa) for almost 400 years.

So, it is not surprising that Lithuania today is a catholic country, where the cult of Blessed Virgin Mary is dominating, but today's practices of folk devotion for Blessed Virgin Mary arc not widely discussed in the fields of Lithuanian Catholic Church history and ethnology.
