Anthony Bonna flies to Wisconsin once or twice a year with the sole purpose of visiting the National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion, formerly known under a different appellation of Our Lady of Good Help. Mary appeared in 1859 to Adele Brise and spoke a message encouraging prayer and catechesis. Today, pilgrims visit the shrine daily to participate in the sacraments of the Church and implore Mary's help. In this episode, Anthony Bonna shares his experience of pilgrimage and what he does for hours while visiting.
