My dearest Blessed Lady of Guadalupe, please liberate my grandparents house from the hands of Jeannie Olsen. She is trying to harm my aunt and divide my family. To thee I bestow my plea. I love you with all of my heart. Please send me your rose today🌹

Dear Eminence, we thoroughly relished discovering and visiting —an EXTRA day at your request, back in July '16 —this beautiful Shrine on our way through N. Dakota, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan back to our home in Canada. Elizabeth IS Mexican-American-Canadian. Raised in New Jersey, her folks were both from Mexico. She passionately loves Our Lady of Guadalupe, and we're both eternally in your debt for having brought Mother of the Americas closer to her children in the States and Canada. While we're both saddened at developments at the Vatican —re Amore Laetitia —we're equally thrilled at your calm, clear, and yes, kind defence of Church teaching. With the other e-mailers, we're proud of having met a true son of the Church, proven by your developing a Catechetical Centre at the Shrine, based on and dedicated to the life-long teaching of Fr. John Hardon, SJ. Indeed, this project addresses the crying need of today, Adult Catechesis.

How I wish it be done in our parish. Having the priest facing the congregation is not only too distracting it makes the sacrifice of the mass seem like a spectacle.

Thank you for organizing this. I can not wait for our family to take part in this.

Please hear my prayers in your name I pray

Happy New Year, Sister Renee! Father Jacinto was transferred to take on new responsibilities in their Congregation. So, Father Elias is now the rector. Father Joachim is Father Guardian. There are times during the year when a 3rd priest is needed -- please pray for this intention! Blessings! Sister M. Ancilla

Thank you Cardinal Burke. God bless you:)

Please add me to an email list if you have one. Thank you and God bless, Mary Ramm

[…] Seasonal – Special Event […]

As a Catholic and Marian Catechist, I am very proud of Cardinal Burke! His faith and courage are second to none. Hang in there, Your Eminence.

Very nice! May this practice become ever more present in parishes everywhere!

I would also like to thank you, Cardinal Burke, for your courage serving the Church and God. I truly appreciate all your efforts seeking reverence in worship and clarity in Church teachings. You have been solidly shouldering this responsibility for years and I fear it will be a heavy cross to carry for the foreseeable future. Please know that you go with the prayers of many and your efforts are appreciated. The Shrine is magnificent and beautiful and will be a gift to Catholics for generations to come.

Celebrating the Mass ad orientem is great!

Thank you, Cardinal Burke, for this announcement and decision... and thank you for all that you do for your flock and to insure the protection of the true teachings of the Chruch. May God Bless you always!

praying For the priests daily, sorry for typo! Sister Renee'

Hello, It has been a long time since I have visited the Shrine, found out today that Father Elias has arrived! How exciting. It will be wonderful to meet him. Is Father Jacinto still on staff there, along with Father Joachim? Please let me know, I have been praying the priests daily. yours in Jesus and Mary, Sister Renee'

Dear Doris, I guess I am not sure what you mean by the "table" and what you mean by the "Altar", since the Celebration of Holy Mass is always offered on the Altar, in the Sanctuary. If you could clarify this for me --

Please Pray for a little 7 year old girl named, Philomena Stendardo 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻 Please!

Thank you Sister, someone had mentioned that Cardinal Burke had the table removed and Mass would be said at the Altar. I was praying that that was true.

Lesley, The Tilma-Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is certainly in itself miraculous. And, new things are being discovered in it as time goes on, with the use of developing technology. On our website, we simply provide for the general public what has been scientifically proven up to this point. Also, we provide the interpretation of the Tilma according to the "Codex,", according to the language of the native people in 1531. The interpretation of the tilma, the symbols, the "codex," then, is the message to all of us today.

Dear Doris, In the celebration of Mass "ad orientem", the Altar remains in the Sanctuary - the priest celebrating the Mass stands on the other side of the Altar, in the Sanctuary. The candles and the Missal on the altar are placed on the opposite side. Otherwise, all is the same as far as the celebration of the Mass, with both celebrant and people "facing the Lord." Am I answering your question correctly? If not, please let me know. Sister M. Ancilla

Has the Table on the Altar been removed? Thank you

May she visit Luo land in Kenya and convert all of them to Catholicism. Her help is most needed. May she visit our other areas in Kenya as well. Amen

There seems to be much more imagery than your list. First it is obvious there is a child at Mary's feet.,the face is on,the left looking down. The folds of her dress at the bottom form the blanket protecting the child. The amazing other symbol is mary is protecting her priests. There is a Jewish priest with prayer box across his forehead which has a cross symbolizing what they should put first God. Mary's hands are the priest hands and the brown ruffles are the scapular she asked us and priests to concecrate to her. There is also a wolf face peeking out on her left below her face. In,addition to that there is the all seeing eye below the wolf part of a dragon image in the pattern with scales in the right across from the eye. It is difficult to see the mouth of the priest but the nose is directly beneath her broach or Jewish prayer box. It is definitely an eye below the wolf. I also see Jesus crucified in the fold of her garmet on the right. His head is tilted back to His mother and he is outstretched on the cross. I'm sure there are some I haven't found yet. Am I the only one that can see?

Lord I am claiming, declaring, and receiving victory over my prayers my breakthroughs are here, for you nothing is impossible I claim divine acceleration Abba I know I'm about to have some amazing testimony of your love and what faith and trust in your word promises will do Wally and I will have a blessed marriage live debt free and so much more in Jesus Christ matchless name so it is Amen and Amen!

I need good catholics to join me in prayers asking for Blessed Miguel Pro to obtain a miracle in the healing of Michael, a veteran American Officer in the army who is dying rapidly of cancer.

Please pray for our 16 year old son Eli who will be transferred to LaCrosse corrections facility today to enter the Core Academy secure treatment program in order to keep him safe from himself as he suffers from drug addiction and anxiety/depression. He has asked that I find him a nearby priest to hear his confession and bring him the Eucharist while he is there. (We live several hours away in Washington County). Might one of the friars be able to visit him if I can clear this with the program? Thank you, Rebecca

Please bless & pray for us.

Dear Rachel, Since the Shrine is not a parish church, we limit such Sacraments such as Marriage to staff and board members of the Shrine, once permission is granted. However, we can host wedding receptions in our culina mariana cafe. As a newly couple, you can come to the Shrine for a blessing of your marriage by one of the friar-priests. Peace and all good, Sister M. Ancilla

I recently just got engaged and am looking for a church to get married in. I have visited the shrine several times and am wondering if you perform wedding ceremonies here?

Love it there.....

Thanks for posting my prayers

We will look forward to your return visit!

Although is this past, to answer your question in general - on Holy Thursday there is not a Mass during the day, until the Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper, which is celebrated at the Cathedral and at parish church. Peace and all good, Sister M. Ancilla

I apologize for not seeing your message -- it looks like you sent it on March 25, Good Friday, and the Shrine was closed both Good Friday and Holy Saturday. Peace and all good, Sister M. Ancilla

Beautiful experience! I am telling everybody I know to go.

When I was around ten I had a vision in my bedroom. It was of the Virgin Mary shining in a bright white light. I was frightened and ran into the living room and told my mother, she told me I must of had a dream although several nights later Mary appeared again and I closed my eyes and went back to sleep thinking it was a dream. The dates were around the end of October and I think about this every end of October. In my life I have had several experiences that I felt a definite spiritual intervention had happened to assist me in a time of immediate need.

Dear Teresa, Please contact Pat Krause - (608) 799-4571 - since she is taking the RSVP's, and would be able to tell you if someone from Minnesota has RSVP'd. Thank you! Sister M. Ancilla

Send me information. Fo you have one going from Minnesota?

Maria, Our Blessed Mother, since the birth of the Church and the coming of the Holy Spirit, has been with the Church since then and continues to be with us, her children. She lets us know of her presence in many ways. One way is appearing on earth, in various countries, to various peoples, with a specific message meant for all peoples. Thus, the apparition/appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe to Saint Juan Diego occurred in December 1531. Her message to the Aztec people of that time, and to us today, is that she is our Mother, who wants to help us to grow closer to her Son. Her dress is full of symbols that were understood by the Aztec people -- she is with Child, the Son of the true God. "I am not your Mother? Am I not here? I hold you in the folds of my arms." She is Mother of the entire Continent of America; she is Patroness of the Unborn; and she is the Star of the New Evangelization. Pray to her - she is Holy Mary, our Mother -- pray to her as you would to a Mother -- she helps us in all our needs, and shows us the way to her Son, Jesus. Take a look at: http://www.guadalupeshrine.org/resources/guadalupe. If you have any more questions -- I only explained very briefly -- feel free to email : srmancilla@guadalupeshrine.org.

Hi I would like to know what is the purpose of our lady of Guadalupe? Who is she? Why is she important amd honored? Do people pray to her? I have a picture of her on my wall in my house but I dont understand who she is and what she has done for us?

Jacqueline, If you to to our Videos page, the video is the first one that appears: http://www.guadalupeshrine.org/multimedia/videos The song is "Salvation Poem" - the priest is Monsignor Joseph Hirsch. Sister M. Ancilla Director, Communications

where can I find video and name of the priest that plays guitar and sings "Help me Lord to live for You?

I love your posts and reminders Thank you I have a monthly donation being made to the shrine and I would like a candle lit for Memorial weekend for my deseased relatives and son seving in Afganistan I candle God Bless You all

A beautiful soul responding to another beautiful soul in Christ: this indeed is a great thing! God love you!

God is showing us the way of truth through Cardinal Burke this, I truly believe. I remember the feeling upon meeting him the first time, immediately knowing that this was a Holy man. In times of distress I gain strength by recalling the depth of his faith and convictions. This little child knew as well and has been blessed to be touched by Cardinal Burke's gentle spirit. God be with this precious little boy.

this is a beautiful story. i do believe! merry christmas!!!!!!!!!

I have been a big supporter of Cardinal Burke for quite a long time. His dedication to the Blessed Sacrament and our Blessed Mother is deeply moving. The story of a little boy who so despertly wanted to receive his First Holy Communion is touching and is a wonderful symbol of the young people in our Church. Thank you for sharing.

Not that much surprised by Cardinal Burke and his response..might have done the same if i held this same authority through our Church. God sure has some awesome lovers working to get even closer to Jesus Christ ans may they ever be at work like this at His coming again.

Such a heartwarming story. I will keep young Louis in my prayers.....he is surely a "saint-in-the-making"! Thank you dear Cardinal Burke for being "Jesus" to this little boy. Who knows, he may be chosen Pope someday! Blessings all at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Sandy in San Mateo, CA

This story of little Louis made me weep. I ache for a shepherd like Burke. God bless the Martins.... Our lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!!!

Beautiful Story.

[…] 2005, he proposed to her at the beautiful Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in LaCrosse, Wis. in the Mother of Good Counsel Votive Candle Chapel. The 14-foot high tower of candles puts off an other-worldly blue hue in the usual-looking chapel. […]

Thank you so much for posting Cardinal Burke's homilies during his visit. Some of us Marian Catechist can not attend the masses because of health reasons but we can benefit so very much from reading the words His Eminence has shared with the many who are so blessed. This is another way we can be united in prayer and sacrifice.

God bless our Pope Francis, our Pope Emeritus, our Catholic Church and faith and the world. God help all who are misled like President Obama to listen to the real Will of God. May God send His Holy Spirit to all of us so that we may be enlightened and follow the Will of God. Amen

I came to the Shrine on a Pilgrimage and was very pleased with the events that happened before we got there and after we left I keep a watchful eye on the events through Facebook. On our journey to LaCrosse last Set 29 2012, I say were we about 35 miles from the Shrine and in the sky appear a great cross I got pictures, My mother saw this and so did the two people behind us and then at the Shrine we saw what we could do (to my mother being 82 could not do alot of galavanting} but we looked around in the gift shop went to the candle house and lite a candle for the family made it to the Shrine and participated in Mass,visited the tomb of the unborn and then made it to the last Station of the Cross, said our prayers and headed back down. On this trip I watched a girl who was cold to faith of anykind (her mother requested she take the trip) accept that God is real and forgiving and like a child with a new gift told me she was blessed Here I may also add part Comes from Friar Joe of Warsaw ND and she had a relic blessing also and she was so happy, Her life changed that day as did mine I realized noone but the Lord can make me happy if others do, it is a bonus and the many sleepless nights I have are not from fear but from the need to hear his words and in them I and finding peace, still confused but so much more acceptable to the ins and outs, and I have since that time took my occassional prayers to daily of 2 1/2 hours a day I have yearned to be there at the Shrine so often and I have asked that I may return this year, and then I open the book today and the three Shrines are listed as part of the year of Faith ... AMEN I say AMEN

I have had the good fortune to visit Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine in LaCrosse many times and I feel such peace when I am there! I thank Cardinal Burke for getting this Shrine built. I hope all of you will consider a pilgrimage to this most wonderful place...you will be surprised at the beauty of it...I promise you! I will be enjoying The Cornerstone.
