Our Lady of La Leche is an amazing little Catholic shrine in St. Augustine, Florida. I first heard about this place from a dear friend of mine. She brought me back a necklace and prayer card from her visit. For a long time I wore the necklace and prayed hard for my sweet Penelope to come to me.
On Mother’s Day in 2008, I visited the shrine with Peter. We both went in and lit candles and prayed, well I prayed and Peter respectfully sat next to me. I prayed for a healthy baby to come to me.
This is the first shrine dedicated to the Blessed Mother in the United States. Like me, pilgrims who make their way to this shrine, ask for blessing in motherhood and for healthy children.
The statue at the front, is of Mother Mary nursing baby Jesus, and it is just stunning.
Here is the prayer to Our Lady of La Leche if anyone is interested:
