St. Meinrad Archabbey, Monte Cassino Shrine

In Part 1, we looked at the Archabbey itself.  In Part 2, we looked at the windows.  In this part, we will look at the Shrine to Our Lady of Monte Cassino.

In May and October (months traditionally dedicated to Our Lady), there are processions from the Archabbey to the Shrine.  The intercession of Our Lady of Monte Cassino is responsible for saving the town of St. Meinrad from a smallpox epidemic.

The chapel is on top of a hill, off the beaten path.

For more awesome pictures of the inside, see Mark's post over at Rome of the West.  See Jake too!

  1. That chapel was perhaps my favorite part of the monastery.
