Catholic shrines of New England.

In time for the Easter Season, Boston.com has a virtual tour of New England's Catholic shrines. Some of the sites on the tour - like La Salette Shrine in Attleboro, Massachusetts and the Shrine of St. Joseph the Worker in Lowell - are places I've visited in real life. However, some of the others - such as the Shrine to Our Lady of Lourdes in Litchfield, Connecticut and St. Anne's Shrine of Isle La Motte, Vermont - were entirely new to me. If you live in New England - or plan on visiting soon - and are looking for a prayerful place of pilgrimage, take a look at the list of shrines on Boston.com and ask yourself whether any of the featured sites capture your imagination or appeal to your sense of devotion.

Dear Joe,
I love "Our Lady of La Salette", because it is such a perplextion. It is immpossible to make up the illuminated floating message over the church over 100 and some years ago. The photos I have seen online of the mountainous country side of La Salette are breath taking. Her crown is quite unusual as well.

Thanks for this link which I found searching for a summer get-a-way here in New England.
I can't afford a vacation or a much desired pilgrimage to Israel, but I can do THIS!
Thanks for the info.
