This statue is in my local church in Lismore, Co. Waterford in Ireland.

I took this pic recently and was struck by the blue rays coming from the statue.

Blue is of course the colour associated with Our Lady..

St. John's College in Waterford City is to be sold.

Last Sunday in a pastoral letter to all parishes in the Waterford & Lismore Diocese,

the Bishop of Waterford, William Lee, announced that due to

a drastic fall off in vocations, in recent years,

St. John's College and seminary would (subject to Holy See approval)

soon be sold off.

Garabandal Visionary, Jacinta, photographed in Ireland in 1999.

During her visit here, she spoke through an interpreter at various venues

around the country about her experiences as a teenager in the tiny Spanish village

of San Sebastian de Garabandal where Our Lady

is reputed to have appeared to Jacinta and her three friends over 2000 times,

at all hours of the day and night over a period of several years, back

in the early 1960s.

The forecast 'miracle' and 'warning,' are still to take place & many pilgrims

are wondering if this will happen in 2004.

Unusual Photo

of the Holy Eucharist taken in the

Blessed Sacrament Chapel in St. Mary's Dungarvan.(28.01.03.)

This unusual pic, was taken without flashlight on a digital camera,

of people praying before the Holy Eucharist, in the newly refurbished

Blessed Sacrament Chapel in St. Mary's Parish Church,

Dungarvan, Co. Waterford.

What is unusual, is that the Host is actually only about 3" in diameter

mounted in a light wooden board which is about 18" in diameter,

but in this unretouched photo, the board seems to have has

disappeared or have changed into what appears to be a giant Host.

and Limerick to hear her talk.

Olive from Kent, England who was born in Dublin, is seen here explaining about

how she has been able to live only on the Holy Eucharist, without any other food

or even water, since 1999, which she believes is a special gift from God.

Before attending the talk I was sceptical too, but found her

a very sincere speaker,

full of joy and peace with a great love for Jesus and his Blessed Mother.

Meet Mary Hayes from Lisnagry, County Limerick who I met

this year in Cork.

As a young woman Mary had multiple cancer and in 1964

and was given only 6 months to live.

After 24 operations doctors would not try chemo therapy

or radio therapy on her as they thought there

was no point.

Mary turned to God and prayed to Jesus,

saying that if he cured her, she would attend

daily mass for the rest of her life.

Nearly 40 years later Mary is living proof

of the power of prayer, and a great woman.

Last week Sr. Ivana Troy aged in her 90s died in the USA. She came

from a well respected Ballysaggart Co.Waterford family and you can read her late

brothers interesting story first published by me in January 2000. by clicking this link.
