Another trip to the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help.

 I am posting late, and I have a great excuse. I am on a motor coach, on my way back from the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help. All of your intentions were in my heart, as I served Holy Mass. It is such a blessing to have an approved Marian apparition site in our state, in our country. If you have not been up here to visit the Shrine, I strongly encourage you to make a pilgrimage to this holy place. As you know, the Feast of the Assumption is coming up on August 15th. This feast is celebrated so beautifully up here; so come up and honor your mother.

 Today also happens to be Saturday, the day of the week consecrated to the Blessed Mother. I am doing my part to continue this tradition by posting a short prayer to the Blessed Mother, each and every Saturday. Given the circumstances (balancing a laptop in a motor coach is one story, actually typing something coherent is another), today’s post is going to be quite short. Please join me in invoking the Virgin Mary, under the title of Our Lady of the Highways, to protect us on our pilgrimage and all travellers this summer.

 Prayer to Our Lady of the Highways.

O Lady of the Highways, be with us on this journey, for all thy ways are beautiful and all thy paths are peace. O God, who with unspeakable providence does rule and govern the world, grant unto us, Thy servants through the intercessions of our watchful mother, to be protected from all danger and brought safely to the end of our journey. Amen.

Thank you and don’t forget to offer little acts of love to our Blessed Mother on her special day.

    Hi Ken,

    I love your photo of Our Lady of Good Help! I’m working on a story about the shrine for the magazine “Missio Immaculatae.” a publication of the Franciscan of the Immaculate. I’m hoping I can have your permission to perhaps use the image in the magazine. I would credit you in the magazine and, if you like, I can send you a copy of the finished issue.

    Thanks in advance for your consideration!
