He who knows how to forgive prepares for himself many graces from God. As often as I look upon the cross, so often will I forgive with all my heart.

-St. Faustina

The Four Last Things


On the Third Sunday of Advent, December 11, 2016, His Eminence, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, installed Father Elias Mills, F.I. as the new rector of the church at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  Following the homily, Cardinal Burke said to Father Elias:

Remember, Fr. Elias, always be a loving father, a gentle shepherd of souls, and a wise teacher of the faithful to all who come here on pilgrimage, so that you may lead them to Christ who will strengthen all that you do.

Fr Elias Mills




Father will be bringing 1st Class Relics of St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi and St. Bernadette.  The relics will be available for veneration.  Visit our Chapel within the Sancturary dedicated to Fr. Peter Mary Rookey where we have Fr. Rookey's crucifix that contains a Relic of the True Cross. Fr. Rookey used this relic extensively during his healing ministry.
