"Cap-de-la-Madeleine was a parish of lukewarm Catholics. Fr. Desilets was going to use the rosary as a weapon to restore the vitality of their faith."
Recorded from October 7th, the Feast of the Holy Rosary, to October 13th, the 100th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun - the story of Our Lady of the Cape reveals the gravity of our Heavenly Mother's love for souls and the means she uses to bring her children back to faith in her Son.
James Gerard Shaw first visited Our Lady of the Cape as Feature Editor for the British United Press on August 15th, 1948 - the day Isabelle Naud went home from the Blessing of the Sick and rose from the wheel-chair she had been tied to for ten years. In 1950 he succeeded Fr. John Mole, OMI, as editor of Our Lady of the Cape magazine, a position he left in 1953 to devote himself to writing books.
Shaw's unique insight, writing at the height of Marian piety in Canada, and with access to the exhaustive archives at the Cape, reveals many crucial details long forgotten about the extraordinary story of Canada's spiritual heritage ... a careful listen is almost certainly bound to lead the listener to a "Cape Conversion; the aha moment one experiences upon discovering the length, depth and breadth of Heaven's Divine design through the founding of Cap-de-la-Madeleine and the story of Our Lady of the Cape."
