I hope you’ll join me on this journey and invite your family and friends to share in the adventure, too. Please don’t forget to let me know your prayer intentions so that I can pray for you and those you care about. And, please pray for me as I hit the road to theĀ National Shrine of Our Lady of Good HelpĀ in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
I’ll be visiting the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help on June 23. It’s the only Marian apparition site in the United States and I’m inviting you to come along!
Author Jean M. Heimann has written a marvelous book that documents the apparitions, their messages, meaning, and impact on the Church. In Fatima: The Apparition that Changed the World (Tan Books, 2017), she describes the Fatima happenings in colorful detail and shares many little-known facts about Fatima, including saints and popes who have been deeply influenced by it plus much more.
Each Sunday as I say my prayer of thanksgiving after Mass, I try to take one point from the Readings or homily and form it into a motto or resolution that will carry me through the week. I’ve found this to be a very fruitful spiritual exercise. Now, I’m sharing my reflections with you.
