Porziuncola at the National Shrine of Saint Francis of Assisi in San Francisco

"Lord God, is it to be thought that You should indeed dwell on earth? Behold, the heavens themselves cannot contain You, and how much less this house which I have built! Let Your eyes, however, be open day and night upon this house. And when strangers come from distant lands to pray here, listen to them, O Lord, and send them away forgiven."
--The Liturgy for the Feast of the Portiuncola Indulgence, borrowing the words used by Solomon at the inauguration of the temple in Jerusalem
