That reminds me of this video:

Whooooo Marytown!

I worked in Buffalo Grove over the summer, and I tried to visit there as much as possible.

Yup. Gotta love Marytown. I go there every Friday for adoration. It's lovely listening to the Friars sing the Divine Office.
I just remembered there's also  a Shrine of St Therese Lisieux in Darien, which is just outside Chicago.  I believe they have a relic of her heart?  At least a 1st class relic of some kind.
Wow. St. Therese of Lisieux is one of my favorite saints. I'll check that out. When I went to Europe in 2010, we went to the shrine of St. Anthony in Padua, Italy, and they had his tongue, his heart, and I think even his jaw if I remember correctly. We also had a chance to pray in front of his tomb. It's one of the most beautiful places. I also saw the perfectly-preserved body of St. Bernedette. Seeing a miracle like that was truly life-changing.
Padua is one place I really want to get to someday.  Anthony's my baptismal patron saint.  That and the St. Michael shrine on Mt. Gargano, close to San Giovanno Rotondo.

Welcome...And great Irish name, too!!!
