Our Lady of Consolation



Kevin Hammer sent a bit of news about the Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation. Now, the Shrine is one of the Diocese's greatest treasures and I've been putting off any comment on it until I have more to say. Have you seen their WEBSITE? It's one of the best.
The veneration of Our Lady of Consolation started in Luxembourg in 1624. In the late 19th century, several reproductions of the original image were brought to the USA. This year, on May 19 and 20, several of these statues will be brought to the shrine, in Carey, for veneration and for a public procession. This strikes me as a very good idea. The world needs all the public displays of faith it can get. Contact the shrine for more information. For a good introduction to the history of devotion to Our Lady of Consolation, click HERE
