Shrine in La Crosse Connected to Basilica in Rome


Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe Now Affiliated with
Papal Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome
Pilgrims May Gain Plenary Indulgences

On Sunday, July 31, 2011, the third anniversary of the dedication of the Shrine Church, His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Founder of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, announced that the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI has affiliated the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse to his Papal Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome.

With this affiliation comes the opportunity for pilgrims visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe to gain plenary indulgences, under the usual conditions.

“Today, we also have a particular cause to rejoice because our Holy Father has affiliated, has bonded, this church to his Papal Basilica of Saint Mary Major, the great pilgrimage church of Rome, dedicated to the honor of the Mother of God," said Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke. "With the affiliation comes a most generous grant of indulgences, so that pilgrims to this church of Our Lady of Guadalupe may draw more fully upon the rich treasury of the merits of the Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and of His Sorrowful Mother and of all the saints who have shared with Him, to an heroic degree, in His Suffering and Dying. In gratitude, let us pray, in a special way today, for the intentions of our Holy Father. Let us also hasten to draw upon his rich gift to us for the sake of the salvation of souls, especially the souls of our brothers and sisters in Purgatory.”

Specific information about the indulgences and conditions for gaining them may be found below.

Plenary indulgences may be gained at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe:

1. On the patronal feast day of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome: August 5, with which the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe is now affiliated;

2. On the patronal feast day of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse: December 12;

3. On all solemnities of the Virgin Mother of God: January 1, March 25, August 15, December 8;

4. On any day chosen by a pilgrim once a year;

5. As many times during the year as the faithful are part of an organized pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse for the purposes of devotion, reform of life, growth in holiness and greater communion with the Holy Father and all the members of the Church through the intercession of the Virgin Mother of God and Mother of the Church, each of the participants in the pilgrimage may gain a plenary indulgence.

Conditions for gaining the Plenary Indulgence: visit to the Shrine Church, sacramental Confession (within eight days of fulfilling the other conditions), Holy Communion (within eight days of fulfilling the other conditions) and prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father (e.g., Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be; or the Creed and an Our Father) during the visit to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

To plan a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, please call (877) 799-4059.

The press release for the announcement is available for download here.
