They enjoyed the beauty of the Shrine and expressed in their prayer for their loved ones who are in needs of prayer because of sickness. To witness their faith and their love for each other is a blessing for me.

After giving them a blessing, I asked them to pray over me. Their prayer is a vivid testimony of their faith. Thank you for the gift of the Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints which allows me to have this joy in the Lord  with my brother and sister the first time we met.

10th Anniversary at Saint Anne Shrine

I had a privilege to bless the McCarthy family on their 10th anniversary of their wedding. They are blessed to have Arthur, their  first son who just made the first communion. They told me that he loves to receive the blessing for their parish priest. Annelise, their daughter whose name has the name of Saint Anne just celebrated her 4th birthday two days ago.
