Abstract: Din is-sena beltna qed tfakkar ir-raba' ċentinarju minn mindu laqgħet fi ħdanha x-xbieha tal-għola fost il-ħlejjaq ta' Alla raffigurata bħala tifla titlob u tħares lejn is-smewwiet. Ir-rabta tas-Sengleani lejn il-patruna tagħhom ma bdietx mal-wasla ta' din ix-xbieha - kienet hemm minn qabel, sa mill-1581 meta twaqqfet il-parroċċa u għażlu lilha bħala l-ħarriesa waħdanija tagħhom. Bla dubju, iżda, li mal-wasla tax-xbieha mqaddsa tal-Bambina, ir-rabta ġiet issiġillata, għax fejn qabel imħabbithom kienet indirizzata lejn persunaġġ astratt li jinsab fis-smewwiet, mal-wasla tax-xbieha l-imħabba ntrabtet b'mod dejjiem magħha. Għas-Sengleani meta xi ħadd isemmi l-Madonna, hija x-xbieha tal-Bambina li tiġi quddiem għajnejhom. U hekk għandu jkun.
