"Consolation" series with Fr. Scott Woods

The Conventual Franciscan Friars of the Basilica & National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation, Carey, Ohio are focusing on the theme of “Consolation” this year at the Shrine. For over one hundred forty years, Mary the Mother of God has shown herself as a loving Mother to thousands of pilgrims each year. Through Mary’s intercession and prayer, the sick have found health, comfort and consolation.

Mary knew God’s consolation and it has become a source of consolation for each of us.  We will be reflecting upon our lives, our sorrows and all the challenges of life.  Mary can teach us about consolation for she is the mighty intercessor to help us in life.

We invite you to the noon Mass on June 3 with Fr. Scott Woods. Father Woods is originally from Toledo where he attended Central Catholic High School and the University of Toledo. He received his bachelor of education and a bachelor degree in history. After receiving his masters in pastoral studies from Loyola University Chicago, he decided to receive his masters of divinity in catholic philosophical studies from Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology in southern Indiana. Father Woods is a priest of the Diocese of Toledo and was ordained by Bishop Daniel Thomas on May 30, 2015. He has been serving at St. Michael the Archangel Parish, Findlay, OH since July 2015.

"Consolation" series with Fr. Jim Sichko
This year at the Basilica & National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation, Carey, Ohio the Franciscan Friars we will be focusing on the theme of “Consolation” at the Shrine.  “Consolation” can and will take on many forms.  We know ultimately that God is the source of all consolation.  But we turn to Our Blessed Mother for her intercession and help for our journey to consolation.  Mary knew pain and sorrow at so many points in her life.  She carried all this within her heart – misunderstanding, a broken heart, a troubled mind, fears and pain. Yet through the Cross and the Holy Spirit she lived with a freedom to trust and respond in faith, hope and love to all that life brought her. 

Mary knew God’s consolation and it has become a source of consolation for each of us.  We will be reflecting upon our lives, our sorrows and all the challenges of life.  Mary can teach us about consolation for she is the mighty intercessor to help us in life.

Fr. Jim Sichko will be the guest celebrant/preacher at the 5:30 pm. Mass (May 19) and 8:00, 10:00 and 12:00 noon Mass (May 20).  Fr. Jim will be sharing his reflections on “Consolation.”  Fr. Jim will also return the weekend of July 1, September 9.
