From the same people who brought you the
view our New Exhibition on the
which has been brought to you through the cooperation of Antonia Salzano Acutis, Curator of the Pontifical Academy Cultorum Martyrum and President of the Institute of Saint Clement I Pope and Martyr, and the Real Presence Eucharistic Education and Adoration Association. This new exhibition consists of 160 testimonies from Saints and Mystics of visions of Paradise, Hell, and Purgatory.
In 1999, a year before his death, Father John A. Hardon, S.J. visited Most Reverend Raymond L. Burke (then Bishop of La Crosse Diocese) and approved of the Bishop's plan to build a Marian Catechetical Center at the Shrine complex. After Father Hardon's death, Archbishop Burke (St. Louis Diocese) assumed the spiritual directorship of the Father Hardon apostolates of which The Real Presence Eucharistic Education and Adoration Association is one and proceeded directly to fulfill his commitment to Father Hardon.
The Marian Catechetical Center will consist of a variety of resources for the study of catechetics, classrooms for instruction in spirituality and doctrine, and facilities for Catholic radio broadcasting. A library, dedicated to the memory of Father Hardon, will contain many of his treasured materials. The Shrine has already received some of his clothing and prayer materials. Other personal library possessions of Father Hardon are intended to be transferred to the Shrine once proper facilities are constructed. To receive and preserve the original writings of Father Hardon, the Catechetical Center will have a museum-quality archiving room on site.
Time is of the essence in constructing the Catechetical Center. Of primary importance is the need for a center to fully engage the evangelization resources available through the Marian Catechist Apostolate; of equal concern is the degree of risk associated with so many of Father Hardon's works – currently spread across a variety of locations and not yet secured in an environment of preservation.
The Capital Campaign is underway for the construction of the Center. Those who benefit from the works of the Father Hardon Apostolates are particularly requested to come forward to assist Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke in this worthy endeavor. No amount is considered too small.
