Let Us Pray for You in Rome!

Let Us Pray for You in Rome!

Through the intercession of Our Lady of the Snows, the Missionary oblates want to give you a very special gift - The GIFT OF PRAYER!

We want to pray for you at two key places in the world that honor Our Lady of the Snows. First, we want to pray for you in Rome, Italy - the origin of devotion to Our Lady of the Snows. In 352 A. D. a wealthy Roman named John and his wife shared a dream in which Our Lady told them to build a church where the snow falls. On a steamy August 5, the people of Rome awoke to a miraculous snowfall on Esquiline Hill. The couple built a church (now the Basilica of St. Mary Major) on the spot where the snow fell.

The Missionary Oblates in Rome will pray for you on August 5 during a special Mass on the feast day of Our Lady of the Snows. All you have to do is send in your prayer petition. I will then send it to the Oblates in Rome.

The second place where the Oblates will pray for you is at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows, in Belleville, Illinois. This year we are celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Shrine, a place where millions of pilgrims have found healing and hope over the years. We are also celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the Our Lady of the Snows Healing and Hope Novena.

Please return your prayer intentions by July 28 to ensure that your needs will be lifted up in prayer at these two special locations. In addition to receiving the Gift of Prayer, you can also take part in devotion to Our Lady of the Snows in these special ways.
