The Mary Gate of Heaven shrine is a reminder that Mary is called the “Gate of Heaven”, because Our Lord is in Heaven and she is the way to Him. As our Lord came to us through Mary, so must we go to Him through her.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
