My wife and I were able to make a quick trip to the St. Louis area to visit her family. On Sunday we made a short trip a little farther east across the Mississippi River into Belleville, Illinois to visit Our Lady of the Snows Shrine for Divine Mercy Sunday. The shrine has long been a favorite of mine during the Advent and Christmas season due to their extravagant Christmas displays. This was my first visit for Divine Mercy Sunday. It was absolutely wonderful.
The grounds of the shrine were beautiful. There are times I really miss the lush green lawns during the early spring. In Wyoming I am just grateful when I am not shoveling snow in April and May.
I will share more pictures in the days/weeks ahead. I hope you are having a blessed Easter Season!
