The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared at the church gable in 1879. A million pilgrims and invalids come to the Shrine annually. I know my grandmother (in the early 1900's) and her family would travel to the Shrine yearly. Pope John Paul visited in 1979. Stations of the Cross is said daily, and there are gifts shops to buy bottles to take home the holy water that comes out of the stone walls. Wonderful spiritual experience.
