Our weekend

This weekend Jonathan and I met up with David and Jennifer and headed up to visit the
Basillica & National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation
This is a place we all love to visit and has been very special to us. We went this sunday which was the anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul II. I was able to join the Confraternity, which was great since I have been waiting to do that for so long, and what a great day to join.
I also got to have some prayer and was blessed with a relic of the true cross, it was awesome and I cannot explain it.
I took some photos as usual. Jonathan will be posting some too in the near future which are alot better than mine, he seems to have more of a natural thing with taking photos.
We finnished our evening off by eating out and driving home again. I was certainly tired from the drive and slept like a log.
Here are some photos from the park near the shrine:




And here is the inside:

Thanks Antonia, glad you like it.

Jack,
The Basilica in DC is unbelievable. Was there about 8 weeks ago. I recommend starting in the basement before the main chapel. (Weird recommendation, I know.) Anyway, would love to hear your feedback on one versus the other.

Carmel, Tom, thanks for the recomendations. I've seen the Baslica of TIC on TV so many times I really want to see it. Unless anything changes I'll be in D.C. during Memorial Day weekend (May 27-29), hopefully I can hit it my first night there.

Hi, thanks for coming!
