Mother Angelica's dream

There is in Alabama, in an area that has always been considered the Protestant belt, a great sanctuary, of unbounded beauty: the Sanctuary of the Blessed Sacrament (Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Hacenville, Alabama, United States).

Inside it there is a great custodyone of the largest in the world, of two meters highwhich is the jewel of the sanctuary, where the Blessed Sacrament is exposed 24 hours a day and that has been carried out in GRANDA's workshops.

The sanctuary belongs to the Poor Clare Nuns of Perpetual Adoration at the head of which is Mother AngelicaShe is an extraordinary nun who is not slowed down by anything. In fact, the existence of this sanctuary is due to her. In 1995, while Mother Angelica was at the Sanctuary of the Divine Child in Bogota (Colombia), she received a message from the Divine Child who told her: "...".Build Me a Temple and I will help those who help you.".

Upon her return to the United States, the Mother Superior of the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration and foundress of the Monastery of Our Lady of the Angels in Birmingham (Alabama), after sharing her experience with the other nuns of the Convent, got down to work.

The first step was to find and purchase land on which to build the church and a new monastery. Thanks to the generosity of five anonymous donors, the sisters were able to acquire land in HancevilleAlabama where to erect the temple.

The next step was to find a company that could meet Mother Angelica's expectations and help to filling of beauty inside the sanctuary. Thus it was that, through the indications of a parishioner, Mother Angelica made contact with GRANDA.

After a visit our facilitiesMother and the sisters accompanying her were impressed by the fineness of the liturgical objects, the quality of the craftsmanship and the personalized attention provided by the team of GRANDA.

Architects, planners and craftsmen got down to work: monstrance, Stations of the Cross, design of plans, use of materials, exterior door, altar cross, confessionals, benches, sculptures, all these elements left GRANDA's workshops via the United States.

Today, the Sanctuary is still one of the most visited and admired for its beauty.
