It may look like some mere megachurch to some, but Mary, Queen of the Universe Shrine is a dream come true for Catholics like me - and it has been that way for nearly 16 years! I visited that wonderful place for 12 years and it's just magnificent from the first visit. Here in Florida, where I live one hour away from Central Florida's religious crown jewel, this is the best Marian shrine I visited in-state! The surrounding scenery - the fountains, greenery, and flowers - is breathtaking, but step inside the sanctuary and be awed by the dazzling stained-glass windows and the glass-rod crucifix. The Blessed Sacrament Chapel is equally good too. If you have the chance to visit this property, please see the Museum and the new Pilgrimage Center (I haven't been there yet).
If you Catholics are traveling to the Orlando area or if you want just peace and quiet, then the Shrine is for you.
Oh, and didn't I mention that it's just minutes away from Walt Disney World?
