If you believe in the Virgin Birth we have another Mary story for you...

It's a pretty little church decorated inside and out with fine art touches like the pretty dove above and mosaic detail above, but the Milk Grotto is a huge rip off. 

The story is that Mary rested at this spot to feed the baby Jesus and a drop of her milk fell on the red rock she was seated on turning it milky white. I mean, come on.

Many pilgrims were reading missals and taking pictures in the chapel. Mostly what there was to take pictures of were paintings of Mary breast-feeding. I kept wishing my sister Jo-Ann, a vocal opponent of the whole idea of the La Leche League, had been there.
