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:
