Millennium Spire

Pope John Paul II urged us to prepare for the Great Jubilee 2000 as a time full of hope, “a new springtime of Christianity.” In response to the Pope’s call, an 85′ tall Millennium Spire was constructed and rises out of a Candelarium built at the top of the hill overlooking the Shrine’s Amphitheatre.

Thousands of prayer requests, in the form of votive candles, light up the base of the Spire.
