A HOLY PLACE OF MARY’S FAVORS

Since 1875, countless pilgrims have journeyed to the Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Ohio to offer prayers of thanks and to confide their needs to the Mother of God as Mary, Consoler of the Afflicted. Devotion to Mary under this title dates back to the second century and is among her earliest titles of honor.

In the 17th century, as plague ravaged the population of Luxembourg, the people formed a special union with Mary, Consoler of the Afflicted. An image of her was enshrined in a small chapel built on the outskirts of town and many favors were authenticated among visiting pilgrims.

In 1652, the Pope fostered devotion to Our Lady under this title by establishing a confraternity. The devotion spread to the United States, and the first shrine to Our Lady of Consolation was built in Carey, Ohio.

A replica statue was commissioned and arrived from Luxembourg in 1875. Since 1875, Mary, the Mother of God, has manifested herself as a most loving Mother to the thousands of the devoted pilgrims at this shrine. Through her prayers, the sick and afflicted have found health, comfort and consolation.
