This final part about Key West’s Roman Catholic Basilica- St. Mary Star of the Sea’s grotto to honor the apparition of the Madonna at Lourdes, France continues. For 100 years her intercessions to God for the island against hurricane’s have worked. Also some history about the nun, Sister Louis Gabriel who’s vision and pledge made these requests possible.

Journalist Marcy Knight’s article (Florida Catholic) that I quote from- Her entire article that also includes a detailed collection of photos.

From Kay Thomas’s Blog- Details about the tavern that keeps a candle at the ready for when storms approach.

Local 10. com TV interview in 2017 as Hurricane Irma approached.  Interesting to hear a person’s reasons for visiting the grotto honoring the Virgin Mary during a time when humanity must face to the unknown force of nature.
