A new shrine...

The newest shrine at Our Lady of the Atonement Church contains a large icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and it will be dedicated as a place to pray especially for expectant mothers and unborn children, and also particularly for those babies in danger of being aborted.

It will carry the following inscription:

Beata Maria Virgo Guadalupensis,
Imperatrix Americarum, Praesidium Nondum Natorum.

The English translation is:

The Blessed Virgin Mary of Guadalupe,
Empress of the Americas, Protectress of the Unborn.
