Yesterday (on Sunday), I took my Mom to the Mother Cabrini Shrine in Golden, Colorado. Mother Cabrini was the first American saint, born in Italy, and you can learn about her shrine at It was a wonderful place, and although my family is not Catholic (we are Orthodox), we really enjoyed it. The 22-ft statue of Jesus Christ is called the Sacred Heart, and you need to climb a few hundred stairs to get there.
