Through the centuries, Our Lady of Prompt Succor has continued her work, bringing quick help to those who seek her aid. Visitors from all over the world have come to the shrine, and it’s common to see the faithful kneeling or resting in the pews as they pour out their hearts to her.
Many impressions touched my heart when I visited the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Atlanta, Georgia on my Marian Pilgrimage. It will take me a while to sort through all the impressions that touched my heart. But the one that lingers with me now is the story of a brave Irish priest named Fr. Thomas O’ Reilly.
