America’s got faith! You’ll find it in every state — in grand cathedrals and tiny chapels, in miracle shrines and underwater statues, and even in blessed dirt. Finding these sacred places hasn’t been easy— until now!
Monuments, Marvels, and Miracles: A Traveler's Guide to Catholic America takes you to more than 500 of the country’s most intriguing holy sites, each with a riveting story to tell. Stories about:
architecture (the interior of Guardian Angels Cathedral in Las Vegas resembles angel wings)
religious traditions (in one church in Texas saint images were segregated by sex)
artifacts (the Miraculous Medal Shrine in Philadelphia holds an original cast by St. Catherine Laboure)
answered prayer (from the Grasshopper Chapel in Minnesota to the Coral Miracle Church in Hawaii)
healing places, beautiful places, hidden places, places where saints walked, and much more.
Organised by state and region, Monuments, Marvels, and Miracles can help you easily plan your vacation or pilgrimage, and find sites close to you that you’ve never heard of. Chapters also include Catholic trivia and suggestions for making the most of your visits. Websites, phone numbers, addresses, and other pertinent information are included.
