Mornings with Mary: Basilica & National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation

A friend from my parish allowed me to
use her photo of a church she visited
in Corey, Ohio.
It's the Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation.
I find this shrine breathtaking!
I admire Lisa for her talents;
she's an artist, singer, musician, teacher
and not least of all, a great Catholic wife and mother!
Thank you, Lisa, for allowing me to
share this exquisite shrine
with others.

Our Lady of Consolation. I like that name very much and she is beautiful--and there she is, right in the heartland of America. Thank you for sharing her.

Wow Nonnie. This is a breathtaking shrine. I enlarged it to see it better. I can imagine it is even more beautiful in person. Thanks for sharing.

Mary with an empty lap...
and the words,
yes, no one understands sorrow
more than She.

The lovely picture at the top of your blog fills me with peace. The simple statue surrounded by the beautiful flowers speaks with such grace and gentleness.
