Just back from my own personal Lent retreat at my sister's house; time to spend reading Mother Angelica with no computer, television or radio on to distract me. We did manage a bit of girly shopping time though and to attend a service at her local RC parish church, which is very pretty. I include some pictures of St Boniface at Shirley, Southampton
Remember Oh Most Gracious, Virgin Mary! that never was it known that anyone who fled to Thy protection, implored thy help or sought Thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence I fly unto Thee, Oh Virgin of Virgins, my Mother! To the do I come, before you I cry, sinful and sorrowful. Oh Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions but in Thy Mercy hear and answer me!Amen.
