This Saturday we honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, and it is also the Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham. Please remember the graces of the Holy Doors at our shrines, and that we now have a new national shrine in Williamsburg, Virginia to Our Lady of Walsingham.
Pope Francis proclaimed that “a Holy Door will be opened for the duration of the Holy Year at any Shrine frequented by large groups of pilgrims, since visits to these holy sites are so often grace-filled moments, as people discover a path to conversion. Every particular church, therefore, will be directly involved in living out this Holy Year as an extraordinary moment of grace and spiritual renewal.”
Pray for us, Our Lady of Walsingham!!!
