Claire Dion has started writing, if we can say that in this instance, the Theotokos of Kazan and wanted to put it in the comments. I don’t know how to add pictures to comments, so it goes here. What about the flowers, you ask? Just starting up in front of a statue of Our Lady of Grace on the front steps of the rectory:
These will be red and yellow, with rather large blooms. We’ll make these on behalf of all those who would be giving our Lady flowers but cannot do so in war torn countries or while fleeing as refugees. Hail Mary…

Fr. George–Thank you for sharing the counted cross stitch I had started working on over a year ago. With all that is going I thought I should take it our and finish working on it. I will send you a picture when it is finished–it may be a few months. She is so beautiful–may she cover us all with her mantle of protection.
Your icon in counted cross stitch is lovely, Claire, and I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product posted here when completed. It’s 1st Friday today and looking at your work brought to mind how pleased Our Lord’s Heart must be, your love for His Mother expressed in the many hours of work spent on this beautiful icon of her.
A moment of great peace and beauty in a world gone insane. Thank you, Father.
Fr George – you may be interested to know that the diocese of Tarbes and Lourdes have finally got a new Bishop – Mgr Jean-Marc Micas.
