This is a beautiful breathtaking shrine. Peaceful, inspiring, truly faith searching shrine. Visited our lady of Guadalupe and San Diego chapel and is a soul searching place. The beautiful stained glass windows are inspiring. In all the shrine is a most see place to visit if you are catholic.

I especially was moved by the "Mother/ Child" Chapel area where you can light a candle and pray. There is also the Stations of the Cross to add to your prayerful time. Visit the gift shop that has such beautiful items, from rosaries, statues, and books.
