Our Lady of Victory

"Among the churches of America, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Victory is, for many reasons, to be counted as one of the greatest. This sanctuary is truly a masterpiece, in the nobility of its lines, in the splendor of its marbles, in its massive solidarity, and in its artistic finish.."

-Quoted from the Apostolic Decree by Pope Pius XI which elevated the Shrine of Our Lady of Victory to a Minor Basilica on July 20, 1926.
