Mother Cabrini National Shrine

The Tribune had an article yesterday (should have been on Nov. 13!) about the work being done on the National Shrine of St. Frances Cabrini, right here in Chicago. Not only have I never been there (from what I understand, it's been closed all these years), I have lived an entire decade in Chicago without knowing that there even was a National Shrine in the city. But next fall if all goes well, the shrine will be reopened.  That's something to look forward to! (Readers of this blog may recall my family boast that the French Quarter home of my great-great-grandfather was sold to Mother Cabrini and remained in the Sisters' community until about eight or nine years ago.)
