{Movie Review} Bridge of Roses: Our OWN Miraculous Marian Shrine and Pilgrimage Site in CANADA!

I’m so excited to share news of this brand NEW documentary of our own Miraculous, Marian Shrine and Pilgrimage Site in Canada!

The video is so nicely created with a reenactment of The Story of Our Lady of the Cape (starring my favorite Bishop, Bishop Scott McCaig and Fr. Ben St. Croix) and featuring inspiring interviews from two of my favorite Companions of the Cross, Fr. Roger Vandenakker and Fr. Mark Goring, as well as Fr. Donald Calloway  of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception.

We are so blessed to have Our Lady of the Cape; our own National Shrine in Quebec, Canada!

“Bridge of Roses: The Story of Our Lady of the Cape is a faith-affirming documentary that recounts the remarkable story of Cap-de-la-Madeleine near Trois Rivieres, Quebec – its missionaries, miracles and 400 year relationship with the Mother of God.”

from our National Shrine Notre Dame du Cap

I purchased the digital download of the movie for just $11 and watched it on Vimeo.

I was also SO excited to hear about the giant Marian Congress held in our nation’s Capital in 1947!

and… I eagerly enrolled in the Rosary Confraternity at rosarybridge.com joining a minimum of three rosaries each week with thousands praying around the world!

I spent my birthday in Barcelona and wandered through the spectacular Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. Architecture School didn’t prepare me for this incredible space.

Gaudi, “God’s Architect” is buried in the crypt of the Sagrada Familia, where we attended evening Mass. He was a a holy man and officially named “Servant of God” as the process  of beatification has already begun.
