Tale from a visitor to the Shrine
"This place saved my life,"
He had come to the Shrine years before in great distress after his wife had left him. He had decided to commit suicide, but before ending his life he wanted to say a final prayer. For one reason or another, none of the churches he drove by felt right to him, so he finally ended up at the Shrine. No one else was there that day, and he found a spot in the very back corner of the amphitheater. He tried to say a prayer, but he kept getting distracted by the turning sculpture. Every time Mary faced his direction it felt like she was saying to him, “My son wouldn’t want you to do this.”
“I told her, ‘I’m not talking to you, I’m talking to God.' But she kept turning around with that same message each time.”
He decided to delay taking his life at least one more day, and the next morning came back to the Shrine again to pray. This time he already knew what the statue was going to say to him. “I know, I know,” he told her. “You don’t have to keep saying it.”
The man’s experiences at the Shrine made him change his mind about committing suicide. He moved to another state and rebuilt his life. And years later, he came back to the Mothers' Shrine to give his thanks.
Please join us in praying for these requests.
