  • Beautiful, peaceful place to spend time w/ the Father, His Son and Mary, Queen of the Universe. Stunning architectural designs and sculptures. This church does miracle - i got healed from a 3-yr lump in my throat right on my first visit in Dec 2018... I was getting worried it could turn into cancer. My family doctor and ENT Specialist said they were muscle reflexes. So they gave me high-powered script to relax but never helped. They threw me into a lot of lab tests. Lump continued but after I went home from this beautiful Basilica after attending a Sunday mass, the next Monday morning while rushing for work, I realized the lump was gone. As in 100% gone.. I don't know, it's a truth beyond belief. Just something is saying "I am real, I am here ". Since then I keep coming back as God would allow me to, every Sunday even though I'm a bit far like 1hr drive one way. Currently, I love praying the Rosary at the adoration chapel after mass or before. My 3-yr old baby loves this place too and she is very excited every time i tell her we will go to Papa Jesus house. ^_^
  • If you love the Lord and desire to worship Him as He has revealed in and through the Magisterium... if you care about faithful liturgy and architecture that is in keeping with faithful tradition, skip this place and find a local parish. There is nothing sacred or reverent here. Though the Lord is here in the Mass, He is not well honored.
