Maliha and Evelyn got back from their tour of the Marian Shrines on Thursday night. It was exhausting yet spiritually uplifting. We landed in Lisbon, Portugal; we covered numerous cathedral visits starting with the shrines in Fatima, Portugal, travelling by coach bus through Santiago de Compostela and Burgos in Spain, proceeding to Lourdes, France. After two days we made a turn back to Spain and took a side trip to Agreda to view the incorrupt body of Venerable Mary of Agreda, author of the Mystical City of God (still incorrupt after 200+ years). This is the highlight of Maliha’s trip as she has been reading up on her 4-volume book about the personal revelations from the ever Virgin Mary.
Then we toured Madrid before coming home to the American Paradise, the beautiful USA. There are several religious words learned from this trip that are acceptable to play in Superscrabble games:
