10th Annual Canon Law Conference – Day 1

One of the events I look forward to each year is the annual conference held at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe near La Crosse, WI. These conferences are rather like a retreat, with time for prayer and rest. I always look forward to seeing friends and meeting new people.

Just a glimpse of the welcome center, but you can get the sense of how beautify kept the place is.  The flowers are wonderful.

Proof that churches built today don’t have to look like municipal airports.

I always appreciate a visit to this altar with Bl. Miguel.  There is a first class relic here.  I have a reproduction of this painting on my wall as a reminder of what I might face.

And a visit to St. Therese, who interceded with God for me when my vocation was under serious attack by truly evil people.  I got the classic sign of roses.

Books for sale.  Look at the titles.  Get it?

    There is a side altar at Holy Cross Chapel (Jesuit HS Tampa) that is the twin of that one of St. Miguel Pro. Duncan Stroik…..

    I see a few titles I wouldn’t mind having.

  7. Ave Maria says:

    A visit to this lovely Shrine is worth going out of your way to visit. And when they build a guest house, then it can be even more a destination for pilgrimage.

  8. Semper Gumby says:

    Sounds like a good conference Fr. Z. Thank you for the church and book photos.

    It’s Baseball season, so for those who may remember the ole’ Tinkers to Evers to Chance, one may appreciate my notice of Fr Z’s photo of Gamber to Mosebach to Vigano. Additional lineups are encouraged.
