Find Your Way

Dear Friends of The Shrine of St. Anthony,

Happy Advent!

The roads around The Shrine have been torn up and "under construction" for a number of weeks. Detours and the ever present stop-slow signs have been a regular occurence on Folly Quarter Road. I could not help but think of the Prophet Isiah who proclaimed "A voice of one crying out in the desert, prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths." Although I am sure John the Baptist, who fulfilled this prophesy, did not stand on the road with the turning sign, he did challenge all of us to make the road to our hearts straight and to prepare our lives for the coming of the Lord.

I invite you to come and visit the Shrine this Advent season. Celebrate the God who was, who is, and who is to come. Take advantage of the smooth Folly Quarter Road and enter the Shrine ready to experience the reason for the season-Jesus Christ!


Fr. Michael E. Heine, OFM Conv.
Director of The Shrine of St. Anthony and Carrollton Hall
