Monte Cassino pilgrimages canceled for October

Saint Meinrad Archabbey’s pilgrimages to honor the Blessed Mother at the Monte Cassino Shrine, typically held each Sunday in October, have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, each week during October, a different monk will post a video of his Marian talk. You can find them at:

Speakers and their topics include: Oct. 4, Benedictine Father Joseph Cox – “Mary, Mother of Life;” Oct. 11, Benedictine Brother Maurus Zoeller – “Marian Shrines and Pilgrimages;” Oct. 18, Benedictine Novice Benjamin Ziegler – “Through the Eyes of Mary;” Oct. 25, Benedictine Brother Stanley Rother Wagner – “Here are My Mother and My Brothers: Monastic Devotion to Mary for the 21st Century.”
