The article traces the transformation of a Catholic cult site in Kosovo (Letnica in county of Vitina/Viti) in transition from the 20th to the 21st century over a period of twenty years: first, its slow decline during the wars of the 1990s, the sudden interruption of pilgrimages in 1999, followed by a gradual revitalization when a local cult was turned into a regional or even global one, by presentation on the internet.
