Our Lady of Guadalupe –Lake Erie Edition

On Thursday I was with Michael Medved at an event for our affiliate WHK 1420 in Cleveland. After it concluded, an old friend, Nick Spano, turned up with an offer to drive me to an interesting site not far from Lake Erie the following day. The NFL Draft didn’t resume until 6 PM, so I agreed, and Nick picked me and my brother up early Friday for a trip to Windsor, Ohio, where I was very surprised to find a 50-foot, faithful replica of the statute of the Virgin of Guadalupe in the fields behind a family farmhouse.

The story of Ed and Pat Heinz’ constriction of and devotion to this private shrine is a very Catholic and very American one. Windsor, Ohio is a bit off the beaten track, but worth the trek if you are anywhere near the shrine.

And if you want to combine a visit with more traditional activities, the annual fireworks and community celebration hosted by the Heinzs is held the last Saturday afternoon and evening in June —this year on June 26.

UPDATE: A similar place, for travelers near Amarillo, Texas. (HT: Bucky).
