The Blessed Mother

Last week at my parish, I was greeted by our new statue of the Blessed Mother and she was awe inspiring. It is 9 foot tall and sculpted in Da Nang, Vietnam. It is in the image of Our Lady of Grace.

Our Lady Queen of the Universe Shrine

This weekend my wife, daughter, and I visited Our Lady Queen of the Universe Shrine in Orient Heights (East Boston). It is a breathtaking and beautiful shrine if you have some time and you are in the Boston area. It is really a sight to behold. Pictures of the statue do not do its size and beauty justice. There are also stations of the cross around the shrine as well as mosaics. It was a moving experience and I will visit again.
