Pilgrimages to Monte Cassino Shrine set for five Sundays in October

The interior of Monte Cassino Shrine in St. Meinrad, Ind., is seen Oct. 1, 2017, after two years of restoration efforts. The shrine, named after the famous Italian monastery founded by St. Benedict, has a history nearly as long as the nearby Benedictine-run St. Meinrad Archabbey, dating back to 1870.
