Active Shrine or Active Basilica denotes a currently active place of worship which has been designated as a shrine or has had the title of basilica conferred upon it (or both, as some basilicas are also shrines).
Please note that there is often a church or chapel associated with a shrine and, if that is the case, the church or chapel may have a separate entry that includes scheduling information regarding Divine Services that are not specific to the shrine itself.
Our Lord Jesus Christ..., who came to liberate mankind, in which both males and females are destined to salvation, was not adverse to males, for He took the form of a male, nor to females, for of a female He was born. Besides, there is a great mystery here: that just as death comes to us through a woman, Life is born to us through a woman; that the devil - defeated - would be tormented by each nature, feminine and masculine, since he had taken delight in the defection of both.
