Rev. Philip Dabney, C.Ss.R, To Appear on Live Talk Show of the CatholicTV® Network

WATERTOWN, MA (February 21, 2012) - Rev. Philip Dabney, C.Ss.R, To Appear on Live Talk Show of the CatholicTV® Network

On Friday, February 24, 2012, Father Philip Dabney will be featured on the CatholicTV Network's nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day, to discuss the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the Mission Church, part of the Archdiocese of Boston.

The devotion to Our Lady in Boston can be traced to the very first evening sermon preached in the original Redemptorist church in 1871. That first smaller church was dedicated in the morning and in the evening Father Timothy Enright, C.Ss.R. preached a sermon on the new church's patroness, Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Seven years later, the icon was carried in procession to the present church, affectionately called Mission Church.

Two vases filled with crutches and canes adorn each side of the Shrine, providing testimony to the multitude of cures and graces granted through the intercession of Our Lady. The silver plaque gleaming on one pyramid of crutches was placed there by Colonel P.T. Hanley, of the Civil War, as a tribute for the cure of his daughter, Grace. When Grace was four years old, a fall had shattered her spine. From then on, she was severly disabled, her body boxed in a cast. For years, her parents shuttled her from doctor to doctor, always hoping. They made Novena after Novena at the Shrine, always praying.

And then, on the eighteenth of August, 1883, on the last day of one more Novena, when Grace herself was praying with them, suddenly gave her crutches to her brother, walked over to the Shrine, thanked Our Lady, and marched down the aisle and out of the church.

The dramatic cure became a breathless wonder throughout Boston. More cures began to follow at that time and newspapers across the country hailed the Mission Church Shrine as the "Lourdes in the Land of the Puritans."

Devotions in honor of Our Mother of Perpetual Help are held at the Shrine every Wednesday of the year. People from the Archdiocese of Boston pour down the marble aisles and stir the lofty arches with the prayers and hymns to Our Mother of Perpetual Help.

The Novena entered the world of television in 1984, and for the last twenty five years the Novena has been carried into people's homes in English and Spanish through the CatholicTV Network with Father Dabney.

Tune in on Friday, February 24, 2012, at 10:30 AM to see Father Dabney. All programming is also available at www.CatholicTV.com.
