Hurricane Irma is making its way to Florida, and it is the biggest storm on record. But some of the residents of Key West will stay, because they feel protected by a grotto, Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine, on the grounds of the Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea. People say that as long as the grotto stands, Key West will be protected from the full impact of a hurricane.
An Indiana man upset with what he sees as social change that’s anti-family decided to make an unconventional statement, so rather than protesting or picketing, he built a new shrine to the Holy Family, complete with statues of Joseph, Mary and Jesus, and is inviting people to pray.
