Fr Stephen Imbarrato at Our Lady Queen of the Universe Shrine St Don Oriano Boston

The final day of Fr. Stephen Imbar­rato of Priests for Life’s visit to Boston spon­sored by WQPH and Prayers for life was the biggest.

He spent the morn­ing with the lit­tle sis­ters of the poor before head­ing over to the Our Lady Queen of the Uni­verse Shrine in Boston run by the sons of Divine Prov­i­dence across from the Don Ori­one House.

It is an impres­sive shrine that both over­looks Boston and air air­port from the top of the hill which is marked by a huge statue of our lady and a high tower over­look­ing the city

Before Father arrived to cel­e­brate the 4:30 the assem­bled pil­grims took con­fes­sion for Divine Mercy Sun­day. After mass they assem­bled down­stairs for Din­ner where Fr. gave the blessing

Was intro­duced

and gave his final speech of the trip

I recorded it in two parts

I also man­aged to get a 2nd inter­view with Fr Emanuel whose 1st inter­view was cut off

and here are some assorted clips from the day

After din­ner and the speech the party processed to the ground where there was a pro­ces­sion with the Pro-​Life image of divine mercy (the wind did not play ball as it kept the can­dles unlit).

After the Rosary was com­plete a most unex­pected twist took place.

The tower has been closed to the pub­lic for a full decade due to the need for repairs but we were informed that Fr. and the image of Divine mercy would be allowed to go to the top to bless and con­se­crate the city. We where how­ever unable to enter through the front door as none of the keys were working.

So we made our way to an ele­va­tor that reached the tower that was nor­mally locked out.

It was a tight fit with the image and the pho­tog­ra­phers and Fr Imbarrato

but we even­tu­ally made it to the top of the tower over­look­ing the city and Fr. prayed the consecration.

This brought an offi­cial end to the visit and Fr. Imbar­rato sat for a final inter­view when it was all done.

There is one inter­est­ing foot­note, both Mary Ann Harold and Fr. Imbar­rato got a sense dur­ing the prayers that it was the desire of Our Lord and Lady to restore the Shrine. At the time it was built Boston was a faith­ful Catholic City and Mass­a­chu­setts was a State known for it’s faith, as the Shrine has fallen into dis­re­pair so has the faith of the city and the abom­i­na­tions that have come out of the state to affect the entire coun­try and the world are too numer­ous to men­tion here.

So while I as always hope you might kick in a few buck to DaTip­Jar to make up for the cost of days of work missed and my time per­haps it might be a bet­ter use of your funds to raise the funds nec­es­sary to make this shrine what it once was, and per­haps help make Boston the city of faith it once was too.

The final day of Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life’s visit to Boston sponsored by WQPH and Prayers for life was the biggest.

He spent the morning with the little sisters of the poor before heading over to the Our Lady Queen of the Universe Shrine in Boston run by the sons of Divine Providence across from the Don Orione House.

It is an impressive shrine that both overlooks Boston and air airport from the top of the hill which is marked by a huge statue of our lady and a high tower overlooking the city

Before Father arrived to celebrate the 4:30 the assembled pilgrims took confession for Divine Mercy Sunday. After mass they assembled downstairs for Dinner where Fr. gave the blessing

Was introduced

and gave his final speech of the trip

I recorded it in two parts

I also managed to get a 2nd interview with Fr Emanuel whose 1st interview was cut off

and here are some assorted clips from the day

After dinner and the speech the party processed to the ground where there was a procession with the Pro-Life image of divine mercy (the wind did not play ball as it kept the candles unlit).

After the Rosary was complete a most unexpected twist took place.

The tower has been closed to the public for a full decade due to the need for repairs but we were informed that Fr. and the image of Divine mercy would be allowed to go to the top to bless and consecrate the city. We where however unable to enter through the front door as none of the keys were working.

So we made our way to an elevator that reached the tower that was normally locked out.

It was a tight fit with the image and the photographers and Fr Imbarrato

but we eventually made it to the top of the tower overlooking the city and Fr. prayed the consecration.

This brought an official end to the visit and Fr. Imbarrato sat for a final interview when it was all done.

There is one interesting footnote, both Mary Ann Harold and Fr. Imbarrato got a sense during the prayers that it was the desire of Our Lord and Lady to restore the Shrine. At the time it was built Boston was a faithful Catholic City and Massachusetts was a State known for it’s faith, as the Shrine has fallen into disrepair so has the faith of the city and the abominations that have come out of the state to affect the entire country and the world are too numerous to mention here.

So while I as always hope you might kick in a few buck to DaTipJar to make up for the cost of days of work missed and my time perhaps it might be a better use of your funds to raise the funds necessary to make this shrine what it once was, and perhaps help make Boston the city of faith it once was too.
