Synopsis

Over the past 11 years, we have been present at, or brought pilgrimages to every major shrine in the world. We have walked the Way of the Cross at the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem on Good Friday, and fought the crowds at the Tomb of Jesus. We have been to the Shrine of St. Anthony in Padua on the 13th of June, where pilgrims from all over Europe come to venerate the saint. We have been to Fatima on the 13th of October, in memoriam of the Great Miracle of the Sun, when over a million pilgrims take part in the ceremonies. We have been to Lourdes at the height of the Pilgrim season, where up to 250,000 pilgrims march in the Candlelight Procession. We have been at audiences with the Pope in Rome at Eastertime, when close to 100,000 pilgrims jammed St. Peter’s Square. We attended a Mass at St. John Lateran’s in Rome in 1979, celebrated by Pope John Paul II, with a procession of the Blessed Sacrament following, where the secular newspapers complained of traffic jams caused by crowds of over 200,000 walking with Our Lord Jesus and Pope John Paul II.
