Eager Anticipation


The Day With Mary crowd visit the parish tomorrow. As well as it being a fantastic day, (Marian and Blessed Sacrament processions round the area, Mass (lots of Latin), Confession, Adoration, Crowning of the statue of Our Lady, some sermons about Our Lady, the Rosary, traditional Marian hymns and other devotions, and a packed church full of lots of people just wanting to worship God), there is also a bookstall with a selection of books published by TAN (so no touchy-feely nonsense to be filtered out, and no danger of picking up anything which is in open dissent with the Magisterium...) There's also a statue, medal, scapular and prayer-card section...

Oooh, I'm salivating in anticipation...

To top it all off, our own statue of Mary at the Lady Altar will be clothed in the new cape which has just been made. I've got a shot of me in front of the statue at the top of my blog... now all I need is someone with a camera tomorrow for a before-and-after photo-shoot...

Fr Tim, that is a hint...

Oh, I think I'm going to sulk! Why do you get all the fun? ;-)

Mac - I'll give you charge of the big camera for the day :-)

...and how, exactly, will I be able to photograph the back of my head?
