When Pope John Paul II came to the Shrine he said,
"Today, indeed, we come to Notre-Dame du Cap as people of our time. We come with those generations of the past with whom we share our faith in the Mother of God. A fine inheritance has been bequeathed to you. It has made you what you are. And the cornerstone of that inheritance is Mary, to which your predecessors dedicated themselves. We are here to, as it were, transfer this sharing of faith into the hearts of our generation and their successors."
"Those generations of early witnesses provide us, who are here, with our inspiration. Courageous as the prophets, they generated faith, fanned it into flame, tended it lest it die out in the ashes of skepticism. When we are tempted to lose our grasp on hope, it is their faith in the future which upholds and stimulates us. Through the generations it is the pilgrims' faith that confirms the special vocation of this Shrine."
