Margaret Fenelon, from Milwaukee, was at EWTN Studios offering English commentary during livestream of opening ceremonies from the Original Shrine in Germany.
Excerpt from the Jubilee Door Ceremony:
Priest: "If the Church seeks Christ, she always knocks at our Mother's house and asks 'Show us Jesus".
The priest knocks three times on the door of the Shrine.
The door opens from within
All enter the Shrine
The Blessed Mother is presented with roses as a sign of devotion and gratitude
The jubilee candle is placed in the sanctuary ...
"We enter into that moment when our founder and founding generation dared to 'step over the threshold' and take the 'death leap', and the Blessed Mother opened the door to her heart and this little Shrine".
