Basilica & National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation, Ohio

The Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation was the first shrine to Our Lady of Consolation in the US and was completed in 1875. When the replica statue of Our Lady arrived it was carried in a 7 mile procession to the church. Although it stormed all around them, no rain fell on the people taking part in the walk or the statue, which many felt showed the shrine as a holy place of Mary’s favors.
