Marylake Day of Amnesty and Forgiveness

Marylake Day of Amnesty and Forgiveness

The Augustinians have been at Marylake for 75 years. Their history and tradition is long and true. During those years, the Monastery, Shrine, Retreat House Convent and Barn have been home to items and artifacts that were valuable, historic, traditional, sentimental and sacred. They have also come from all over the world.

marylake_events_amnesty_main.jpg

Over time, items have gone missing. Items have been stolen, items have been wrongly gifted without proper authority, items have been borrowed and never returned. As recently as this past Christmas, 4 pieces were stolen from our newly donated Nativity Set. The Augustinians here at Marylake would like to have them back. Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018 has been declared as a Day of Amnesty and Forgiveness. It will be a day when anyone who has taken anything from Marylake, anyone who has been gifted anything that they feel guilty about taking or anyone who has borrowed an item that they neglected to return it, can return the items to Marylake without any questions asked. All you have to do, is drop it off at the Marylake offices or if you wish, drop it off in the side vestibule of the Shrine. Again, no questions will be asked and all will be forgiven. A second day for the return of any Marylake property will be Good Friday, March 30, 2018. Of course if these days are inconvenient, we are open every day.

In recent history we have recovered one of our original Tabernacles off a website, someone returned a relic of St. Rita that they have always felt uncomfortable receiving as a gift and books have been returned that were missing from our various libraries.

Please help to bring home what rightfully belongs to the Augustinians... to Marylake. God Bless.

Saint Blaise was an Armenian bishop who, according to tradition, suffered martyrdom during the persecutions of Licinius early in the 4th century. Little is known of his life, but for centuries the intercession of Saint Blaise has been sought by those suffering from or seeking to avoid diseases of the throat. In keeping with this tradition, we will have the “Blessing of Throats” immediately following our 9:00 am Mass on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018.

The Canadian Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe

This life size image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a faithful, life-size copy of the Sacred Tilma (cloak) of Saint Juan Diego. In 2001, the original tilma on display in Mexico City, was digitally photographed and printed on canvas using laser rays.

One of the copies produced was given as a gift to the faithful of Canada by Monsignor Diego Monroy Ponce, then the Vicar General, Bishop of Guadalupe and Rector of the Sanctuary in Mexico City. He blessed the image at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe on March 2, 2001 and asked that it travel in Canada in the new evangelization. The Image was given the official title: "The Canadian Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe".
