    I’m so glad you and Luke took the time to experience the Fatima Shrine and spend some time with the Barnabite community. Your article captured the warmth of the fathers, their humor, hospitality and camaraderie. It’s an incredible place, a testament to the faith of our parents and grandparents, and the gratitude they were so proud to express through their generous patronage once comfortably landed in the new world.

    Thank you for writing this wonderful piece about a place that was cherished by my parents, and that I consider a second home.

    What an incredible day you had! I was slightly teary eyed by the time I finished reading. You boys must feel truly blessed to be treated so royally everywhere you go. This sounds like a beautiful, peaceful place to go and what wonderful priests to welcome you there..just amazing. Thanks for sharing your day there.

    Very cool! I’ve visited there several times and always found it to be a place of inspiration. Your blog is doing His work by inviting so many to reconsider their views on faith!

    Very nice – love the pictures and the account of the day. IT was a pleasure to have you guys at dinner and explore so many great themes. Hope to see you all again some time. I enjoy the objective outsider view of the Shrine – you did a very nice review of the Shrine and explanation of Fatima. May your quest bear much fruit God bless.
