I have been visiting Catholic Shrines in the US for over 30 years while still working at Catholic Travel Office. I first visited Blue Army Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in New Jersey since then I cannot count the many Shrines I visited. I also had the opportunity to visit Holy Land, some Shrines in Europe, and south America.
Because I enjoy traveling and I have many things to thank about and pray about, I started driving on weekends to visit shrines. Mostly I was alone but sometimes, my husband will come.
My favorite place to visit so far has been Our Lady of La Leche in St. Augustine, Florida. I also love to visit Shepherds of Christ Ministries - Our Lady of Clearwater. This is Bank building for some reason, an image of Our Lady of Clearwater appeared as well as Jesus Christ. You have to see it to believe that Miracles happens. I hope to get back there every opportunity I get.
