DIVINE LITURGIES WILL BE CELEBRATED EVERY SUNDAY AT THE SHRINE OUTDOOR CHAPEL AT 4:00 P.M. FROM MAY 29th THROUGH OCTOBER 2nd, 2022
We ask that you pray for all those killed by gun violence and those in the Ukraine
Ukraine’s largest exports have been Seed Oil (mainly sunflower 5.32B), Corn (4.89B), Wheat (4.61B), Iron Ore (4.27B), and Semi Finished Iron (3.03B). They have ¼ of the world’s most fertile soil (Chernozem and black rich hummus). While entering these grounds, the area behind the large cement cross to your right is dedicated to the people of Ukraine. Sunflower and corn have been planted as a reminder of our brothers and sisters in Christ that are again experiencing another futile war.
Prayer to Our Lady of Mariapoch
O most blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, adorned with miracles, whose icon shed tears at the place of your mercy in Mariapoch, we who honor you, humbly beseech your motherly care. Save our country from all its enemies; protect the church; and join all in one faith that, at last, the words of Christ may be fulfilled: "There shall be one fold and one shepherd." Do not deny us your intercession; and obtain for us peaceful times, health for our bodies and peace for our souls. Obtain the grace for us that our last hour finds us in the Christian faith and in a state of grace so that we may be enabled to gain eternal salvation. Amen.
