This is a good place to go to humble yourself and get in touch with the benefits of austerity, self sacrifice and introspection. The shrine is simple. The story of mother Drexel is told from her wealthy upbringing to her total revocation of all that to serve the poor "colored" and Indian people of her time.
Her coffin is actually there, to say a prayer by.
And the church/chapel has its own aura of sanctity. Just to it there in silence and contemplation will leave a mark on you.
And if you've gone to the Casino a couple miles away, all the more reason to stop. The contrast is stunning and really brings you back to earth.
Do make this a place to see, even if you already live in the area and just never got around to seeing it.
You'll find yourself coming back for spiritual renewal more than once.
