Water at the Shrine at Ladyewell

What are they doing?

It rained and it rained and it rained at Ladywell today, but we all had a lovely time on our annual pilgrimage to the shrine.

As ever the people of the shrine were friendly and welcoming, as soon as we arrived hot drinks were served and we enjoyed a rest and a chat.

Mary’s Response, Our Response, was our theme. God has called us and we thought about how we respond to our calling. Fr Ian preached at Mass with help from Paul McCartney –Let it be. Mother Mary encourages us with her YES and her positive response “Let it be.” Not a weak ‘OK, let it happen’ but more ‘YES, let it be done to me according to your word.’

Our prayer is that when we hear God’s call we say YES, let it be as God wills in our lives.
