larger font

Of the many religious shrines and sites in the United States, one of the most popular is in Emmitsburg, Maryland. It is the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American born saint canonized in September 1975. The Shrine includes the house she lived in, a replica of the school house she built and a basilica church. The community of religious women she founded now includes six religious communities totaling over 5,000 members. A feature on the Shrine is available on the CNS Video Report available from the Diocesan Web site home page.

This week’s report also provides stories about a report on hidden treasures discovered in Rome, including the site where Saint Paul was believed to be held prisoner. Another story on the CNS Video Report explains the four Papal tapestries that will be sent to London to be on exhibit leading up to Pope Benedict XVI’s visit in two months.
