The Shrine was constructed in the mid-1980s as a way to honor Mary the mother of Jesus and to handle the overflow crowds at the summer services. In 2003, the Shrine was recognized as the 16th National Shrine in the United States.
The Mothers' Wall is a tribute to all mothers, living or deceased. Patrons can visit the shrine at any time to view these names. Patrons can also purchase space for future engravings.

RESPECT FOR LIFE PERSPECTIVE
The second lie used by the Pro-Abortion groups is that the baby is really “Not Alive”, therefore no pain is experienced during the procedure. We all know that life actually begins at the moment of conception, and at only 18 days in the mother's womb her baby's heart begins to beat. Additionally, unborn babies do actually feel pain. After only eight weeks in the womb, an unborn baby will recoil when subjected to painful stimuli. Most abortion procedures are performed after that time period. Whensomeone attempts to lie and state that babies are not alive or do not possess the capability to experience the severe pain associated with bodily dismemberment, you have the resources to expose their lies...
Remember, it's not WHO you are, but rather WHOSE you are.
Why not consider doing something unexpected and unique for your mother or a special mother that you know; something that would demonstrate our gratitude for everything she has done. Mothers do not ask for anything in return for their limitless love and admiration for their children. All they want is happiness for their children. However, we should let our moms know they are appreciated and truly loved. Their hard work should never be overlooked.
The "Mothers’ Wall of Life" features the names of
mothers throughout the world. There are currently over 4,000 names of mothers from around the world engraved in the polished black granite surrounding the 14 foot stainless steel sculpture of Mary. Engraving are every 6 weeks April through October. The only
requirement is to be a mother in any sense of the word, living or
deceased, regardless of race, color or religious affiliation. Price is $400.00 to engrave a name in granite that will last a lifetime.
