At Mass today...

...we were urged to pray  this afternoon for the H. Father's visit to the Holy Land,  especially for his visit with the Ecumenical Patriarch.  The Pope's straightforward, sort of neighbourly, style strikes an attractive note, refreshingly unpompous, as for example in his plea to the Israeli and the Palestine leaders: "I offer my house in the Vatican as a place to meet and pray"

We had a May Day service to Our Lady.
I remember that as children we used to go into gardens to nick flowers to adorn the statue. Virtually the whole school was there, and there was a massive bank of flowers. That's all gone now, sadly.
