Unexpected Pilgrimage

Yesterday, friends and I traveled up to Galena, Illinois for a day-out road trip.

We came across, quite by God-incidence, a shrine to St. Therese of Lisieux which includes several first-class relics of this great Doctor of the Church, some pieces of bone and hair.

These relics and the shrine have been in the Church of St. Michael in Galena since May 17th of 1927!

Her canonization was on May 17th, 1925!

Here is the newspaper article of the report of the opening of the shrine.

Here is one photo of the shrine.

Father Samuel Mazzuchelli, who Fr. Z highlighted on his blog recently, also is connected with the foundations in and around Galena.

Please join me in praying to him for three projects of mine. Thanks so much.

St. Therese, pray for us.

Venerable Samuel Mazzuchelli, pray for us.

Net problems again, so please pray for me.
