Sorrowful Mother Shrine, Bellevue

A view of the statue of St. Bernadette Soubirous from inside the Lourdes Grotto.

Statue of a Filipino saint, I believe St. Lorenzo Ruiz.

Children of Fatima -- Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco.

Our Lady of Fatima.

A stained glass window in the small chapel that is made entirely of stained glass.

Beautiful photos from Sorrowful Mother Shrine!

Here is a link to a post about one of my ancestors who got his start in a religious career at Holy Angels Church in Sandusky, Ohio:

Any chance you can tell me what Church and where in OH did you take the picture of the three children of Fatima? Please email me at

Thanks so much. I love visiting shrines of Our Lady of Fatima with the three children. And, if it is in Sandusky, it is close to the route I always take when driving to Chicago from PA and would love to pass by.

The picture was taken at Sorrowful Mother Shrine in Bellevue, very close to the Ohio Turnpike off of the Rt. 4 exit. Well worth a visit.
(I've emailed more info.)
