"Shrines are visible signs of God's loving power, says one Cardinal. These sacred places are recognized by all religious cultures and that they answer a need in people's hearts: contact with God.
The Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery is nestled among the rolling hills of Hanceville, in Cullman County, northern Alabama. All year round, numerous pilgrims from all over the U.S.A. and overseas, visit the 'Temple', as Mother Angelica affectionately calls it. The awesome Blessed Sacrament is exposed, at its full majesty, in a grand monstrance, upon the most prominent place of the Shrine - the center of the Altar.
Gesu Bambino Pilgrims' House is pleased to be part of this pilgrims' experience. This lodging ministry aims, primarily, at drawing them to the Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
We welcome religious and pilgrimage groups, families and individuals seeking solace at the Blessed Sacrament, while on a spiritual retreat, or when they are on a discernment journey. The Pilgrims' House makes a wholehearted effort to give the pilgrims a prayerful and a healthful place in a peaceful atmosphere.
The Pilgrims' House makes a good effort to direct its guests to Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), the showcase of global Catholic television, founded by Mother Angelica, the Poor Clare nun who was inspired by 'El Divino Nino' (The Holy Child) to build 'The Temple'.
We speak English and Pilipino and a dash of Spanish, French, Italian. Latin? But, by God's grace. .. at the Extraordinary Form of the Mass.
First time at the Shrine? Let us help you, dear friends, arrange your itinerary - gratis et amore.
And when you've arrived, go greet first our Lord at the Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament. He's there ... waiting for us all.
Have a grace- and faith-filled pilgrimage. God bless you all!
