Your Catholic Modern Shrine of the Day

Feast your eyes on the Outdoor Ampitheatre at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois.

The miraculous snow being commemorated was said to have fallen in August in Rome at the behest of the Virgin Mary. Had it happened in February, I daresay no one would care.
