Monte Cassino pilgrimages canceled

By Herald Staff

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 circumstances surrounding 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 are:

• Oct. 4 – Fr. Joseph Cox, OSB – “Mary, Mother of Life”

• Oct. 11 – Br. Maurus Zoeller, OSB – “Marian Shrines and Pilgrimages”

• Oct. 18 – Nov. Benjamin Ziegler, OSB – “Through the Eyes of Mary”

• Oct. 25 – Br. Stanley Rother Wagner, OSB – “Here are My Mother and My Brothers: Monastic Devotion to Mary for the 21st Century”
