Directions to Maranatha Spring and Shrine
Please call the message line at 440.327.5822 to confirm future times.
NOTE: All pilgrims are responsible for three things: accommodations, transportation and food.
Come in a prayerful mood. Many people pray and fast before their visit. Read or re-read about all the graces available on the property. If you are not a MSHL, perhaps make the 3-day consecration just before you make your pilgrimage. Show special kindness to other pilgrims' needs. (You never know if you are encountering an angel or Jesus Himself.) Take in with every breath the peace and joy of Maranatha.
The miraculous Maranatha Spring has been given at this site. There is a manual outdoor water pump and you are encouraged to bring many containers to fill and take home with you. Keep in mind you may need to walk a distance with the full containers, so it may be helpful to have wheeled carts to hold the containers.
Bring portable seats for outdoor services if you can. We have a limited number of benches. Also consider umbrellas for protection from either sun or rain, and flashlights for evening services. Dress appropriately for the seasonal weather (rain, heat, snow). Your feet may be covered with Holy Love mud certain times of the year!
Bring cameras. Many miraculous pictures have been taken, particularly of the Sorrowful Mother statue at the Lake of Tears. You may just capture a miraculous moment or record an image that is special or has a message just for you.
Bring prayer petitions, touch them to the Blessing Point and place them in the petition baskets. You may also want to bring Rosaries, medals, or other religious articles to touch to the Blessing Point.
The 15 decades of the Rosary are prayed. Jesus appears each month to the visionary during the Sorrowful Mysteries and gives messages to the world. The Rosary is paused while Maureen receives the message. Following the Rosary the message is read.
