Arms for Mary Help of Christians Basilica. Quarterly, 1. Arms of Belmont Abbey; 2. Arms of Pope John Paul II who raised the church to rank of minor basilica; 3. Arms of the Order of Saint Benedict; 4. a Celtic cross commemorates original Irish Catholic population. Superimposed on the gold and silver Keys of the Papacy, and the ombrellino, a peculiar attribute of every basilica.
Enjoyed a brief visit last weekend to Belmont Abbey, North Carolina, for the board meeting of the American Benedictine Academy. 60 degree change in temperature. Left Minnesota on Friday at a dangerous -24 F.
