"He loves, He hopes, He waits. If He came down on our altars on certain days only, some sinner, on being moved to repentance, might have to look for Him, and not finding Him, might have to wait. Our Lord prefers to wait Himself for the sinner for years rather than keep him waiting one instant." -St. Julian Peter Eymard


"Our Lord loves you and loves you tenderly; and if He does not let you feel the sweetness of His love, it is to make you more humble and abject in your own eyes." -St. Pio of Pietrelcino


"Love is the most necessary of all virtues. Love in the person who preaches the word of God is like fire in a musket. If a person were to throw a bullet with his hands, he would hardly make a dent in anything; but if the person takes the same bullet and ignites some gunpowder behind it, it can kill. It is much the same with the word of God. If it is spoken by someone who is filled with the fire of charity- the fire of love of God and neighbor- it will work wonders." -St. Anthony Mary Claret


"When you approach the tabernacle, remember that he has been waiting for you for twenty centuries." -St. Josemaria Escriva

Testaments to the joys of pilgrimage

Over the years, a multitude of pilgrims have been kind enough to send us words of encouragement, sharing with us how being in the physical presence of their faith, whether it was at a tomb of a famous saint or doctor of the church, viewing a remarkable relic preserved as a testament to the life of a particular saint, or even praying at a Marian Apparition site, changed them forever in how they view their own personal faith and the particular beliefs they profess as Catholic Christians. Below are the different groups we have taken on pilgrimage, as well as the individual feedback we have gotten over the years from satisfied Catholics.

Pope John Paul II reminds us that shrines are places in which "believers not only revive their faith but also become clearly aware of the duties that derive from it in the social field."
