Mary, pilgrimage, Marge Fenelon

Oh joy! It’s a celebration! And you’re invited!

April 5 is the release for my newest book, My Queen, My Mother: A Living Novena (A Marian Pilgrimage Across America). I am elated! And, admittedly, a bit nervous.

My Queen My Mother, Marge Fenelon, Marian PilgrimageMy Queen, My Mother has been three years in the making and has taken me coast-to-coast across the USA to discover beautiful Marian pilgrimage places while tracing our rich Catholic history and heritage. I’ve seen awesome things, met amazing people, and experienced astonishing graces along the way. I’ve been blessed by my journey, and I pray that my readers will be blessed by it, too, as they share in it through the pages of my book.

But, My Queen, My Mother isn’t just an inspiring adventure. It’s also a mission. My Queen, My Mother’s mission is to foster healing and unity in our nation, greater appreciation of our Catholic heritage, and turn hearts toward our Blessed Mother and her Son. I pray that this book becomes a valuable instrument in Mary’s hands!

That’s a big mission, and I could use your help. Will you help me? Will you please spread the word about My Queen, My Mother: A Living Novena? If each of my readers shares the news with just one other person, and those persons share with one person more, and so on, we can change our country and lead it fully back to God!

Can you imagine what that would be like?

I’m asking you to share the link for My Queen, My Mother with just one person. Then ask them to share the link with one other person and forward the request.

That’s it. One person.

The greatest works of God begin with the smallest instruments – you and me – and we can be part of a growing movement to turn hearts toward Mary and her Son here in the United States and beyond. Our country needs us. Now.

They say that launching a book is much like giving birth to a child. If that’s the case, I’m on my fifteenth baby! Yet, with the pains of labor come the joys of the child itself, who grows to bless the world in his or her own way. So, I pray that this new baby of mine – My Queen, My Mother: A Living Novena – will grow and bless the world.

What do you say? Are you in? Will you celebrate with me by spreading the word? Most importantly, will you please pray for me as I move forward on the mission God has given me? It requires much of me and can be very difficult at times. Yet, it is always joy-filled!

Just one more thing. Ave Marie Press has graciously extended a 20% discount to my website subscribers on all of my Ave books:


I’m truly grateful to them for helping make my celebration so special!

If you’ve not subscribed yet, you can do so here.

In the meantime, the Big Day is tomorrow, April 5 and I am both delighted and on-edge to see how the book is received by my readers. I expect they’ll be blown over by its content because of what I have to share with them about our country’s Catholic heritage and the Marian places of grace that speckle our beloved homeland. The fact that the book, with so much potential, is in print and available is cause for celebration!

I recently received your book “My Queen, My Mother”. In anticipation of the book, I accompanied my daughter on spring break to St. Augustine, FL and went to the shrine of Our Lady of La Leche, which was fittingly for us, the first site in your book. As you experienced, we met some wonderful people at the shrine. It is currently under construction so we were unable to see all parts of the shrine. Maybe I will have the chance to go back someday. I am only part way through your wonderful book, Day 5, but already want to visit every one of the shrines in your book. My question is how did you find out about the shrines you features? You also mention there are many wonderful shrines not in the book. I live in Minnesota and would like to take my grandchildren to shrines in our state or neighboring states. How would I go about finding out where any shrines might be. Thank you for your wonderful book. I will do what I can to promote devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary through your book.

    Thank you for visiting Our Lady of La Leche in St. Augustine. I’m sorry you weren’t able to see the whole thing and hope that you’re able to go back some day to see the rest! There is a wealth of information online. Try doing a search of “Marian Shrines in the United States” and see what comes up. You also can try “Pilgrimage Sites in the United States.” That should give you quite a list of places to visit. You also can search the website of your diocese/archdiocese. Most list any shrines that are located in that diocese. I wish you well!
