St. Sharbel Prayer Garden

Dedicated to Mar Charbel Makhlouf, O.L.M. also known as Saint Charbel Makhlouf or Sharable Maklouf. He was a Maronite monk and priest from Lebanon. Canonized by the Catholic Church, he obtained a wide reputation for holiness during his life. He is known among Lebanese Christians for his miraculous healing in answers to prayers said at his tomb located at the Monastery of Saint Maron, and for his ability to unite Christians and Muslims. 

Named after Padre Pio, also known as Saint Pio of Pietrelcina. He was an Italian priest who was known for his piety and charity as well as for the gift of the stigmata, which has never been explained.

Like the Apostle Paul, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina placed at the centre of his life and apostolic work the Cross of his Lord as his strength, his wisdom and his glory. On the level of social charity, he committed himself to relieving the pain and suffering of many families, chiefly through the foundation of the Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza (House for the Relief of Suffering).

St. Philomena Prayer Garden

This prayer garden is offered to St. Philomena,  a Greek princess became a virgin martyr and died at 13-years-old.

St. Philomena came to Sister Maria Luisa di Gesu and told her she was the daughter of a Greek king who converted to Christianity. When Philomena was 13-years-old, she took a vow of consecrated virginity. After her father took his family to Rome to make peace, Emperor Diocletian fell in love with Philomena. When she refused to marry him, she was subjected to torture. St. Philomena was scourged, drowned with an anchor attached to her, and shot with arrows. Each time she was attacked angels took to her side and healed her through prayer. Finally, the Emperor had Philomena decapitated. According to the story, her death came on a Friday at three in the afternoon, the same as Jesus. 

 

Two anchors, three arrows, a palm symbol of martyrdom, and a flower were found on the tiles in her tomb, interpreted as symbols of her martyrdom.

Schoenstatt, which means ‘beautiful place’, is a small German village located just 8 kilometers north of the city of Koblenz. It was here (in 1912) that a young, recently ordained priest, Fr. Joseph Kentenich, was assigned to be Spiritual Director of the Minor Seminary of the Pallotine Fathers. His aim was “to form his young students into ‘firm, free, priestly personalities’.

In April of 1914, the students established a Marian Congregation, and in that same year, an abandoned small chapel in the valley – dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel – was made available for their use. Fr. Kentenich was strongly influenced by the writings of St. Louis de Montfort, and the teachings of this wonderful Marian saint were a source of inspiration to him as he guided the new sodality.

The official title of Our Lady of Schoenstatt is Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt. The roots of this title are found, first of all, in the fact that the Marian Sodality of Schoenstatt was inspired by the Sodality at Ingolstadt. It was there that Mary was first venerated under the title, Mother Thrice Admirable. A prayer composed by Fr. Kentenich that was circulating at that time began with the words, “Mother Thrice Admirable, teach us to do battle as your warriors.

An American Catholic priest and founder of the Knights of Columbus. Through the Knights, Father McGivney sought to form Catholic men into good spouses and fathers. He has become known as Apostle to the Young and Defender of Christian Family Life. He saw strong families as the foundation of his parish

 

Father McGivney dedicated his life to the spiritual and physical welfare of others, creating the Knights of Columbus to provide insurance for the protection of widows and orphans, and the spiritual benefit of its members and families.
