Rainbow Miracle at the Shrine Basilica

Rainbow appears at the Closing Liturgy of the 50th Assumption Pilgrimage


A great event occurred this year on the feast of Our Lady’s Assumption which many of you witnessed.

Fifty years ago on the Feast of the Assumption as the statue of Our Lady of Lebanon was being blessed, a magnificent rainbow appeared over the statue. It was witnessed by many and seen as a sign from God that He was pleased with the new Shrine dedicated to His Mother.

This year during the celebration of the Divine Liturgy, exactly fifty years to the day, another rainbow appeared over the statue of Our Lady as thousands were gathered in prayer. As the offering of bread and wine was being taken in procession to the altar, everyone looked up and witnessed this magnificent event.


There has been much controversy regarding the killing of a protected lion in Africa in recent days.

In Genesis, the Lord God gave man dominion over the beasts of the earth. With this dominion, however, comes great responsibility to care and protect God’s creation. As humans we cannot just use God’s creation without responsibility. Neither the beasts of the earth nor the planet on which we live should be abused or destroyed. We are stewards of God’s creation and have a great responsibility to protect all of creation as best we can.

The killing of this lion was unnecessary and by no means a responsible act and cannot be condoned.

Even more shocking is the revelation of the tapes in regard to Planned Parenthood which very clearly shows the evil intent of the organization.

AD ORIENTEM: The Facing East during the Celebration of the Divine Liturgy

Many people are familiar with the practice of the priest facing the altar with his back to the people for the celebration of the Divine Liturgy. It was the ancient and time honored practice of the entire church for many centuries.
