The week following the Assumption of the Virgin is always a special time for us, with our Marian charism. So, even in these days of ‘Ordinary’ Time, Our Lady’s presence is specially near. The Church applies these words from the Song of Songs to her: ‘Who is this that looks forth like the dawn, fair as the moon, bright as the sun …?’

May Our Lady watch over us this day, and keep us safe within her mantle. May God bless you.
