Description

Father Baker Hard Cover Book
1960 - By Floyd Anderson
Our Lady of Victory Homes of Charity - National Shine & Basilica
Hard Cover Book - Tear on the dust jacket, first page has been cut out, previous owners name on the inside cover, overall good condition.

For many years, Father Baker had dreamed of a fitting tribute to his patroness, Our Lady of Victory. His parish had grown, and the church was unable to hold the thousands who flocked to his Masses. Each time he thought he could begin, some emergency arose or a new building project took precedence, and an expansion of the existing church was delayed.

At last, in 1921, when Father Baker was 79 years old, he felt he could begin. The Institutions were running as smoothly as expected and it appeared the time had come. He reached out to a renowned architect, Emile Uhlrich, and a local contractor, Edward Jordan, and plans became to form. To help finance the project, Father Baker turned to his beloved Association of Our Lady of Victory and its charitable members, now numbering in the thousands. In August of that year, Bishop William Turner helped lay the cornerstone. The magnificent church was finally completed by May of 1926, and true to Father Baker's word, not a nickel was owed on it!

Upon the shrine's completion and dedication, the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XV, elevated it to the dignity of a basilica in a ceremony held October 3, 1926. At the time, it was one of only two "minor basilicas" in the United States.

Fascinating story of an amazing man!
