JESUS IMAGE DRAWS FAITHFUL TO URSULINE CHAPEL
Hundreds of Catholics and fellow believers are making a visit to the Shrine of Our Lady of Prompt Succor in the Ursuline Chapel on the school’s campus to see what they say is a vision of Jesus on a pillar.
The following comes from WWLTV in New Orleans:
The Ursuline chapel in Uptown New Orleans is home to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Prompt Succor, but for the past 12 days, it has also been home to hundreds of faithful who are coming in to see what they say is a vision of Jesus on a pillar.
“I think this is so extraordinary,” said Charles Davis . “You can see the crown of thorns on Jesus. You can see his face. It’s just very extraordinary.”
Word of the image has spread and people are coming from near and far to see it. TheDavis family came in from Geismar, driven by a deep faith.
The chapel, on the Ursuline Academy campus at 2635 State St., is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays until the 12:30 p.m. Mass.
