This colourful angel is part of a 40 strong angel exhibition called 'Angels Beacons Of Hope'. Many of the angels have messages of hope written on them. They are colourful, thought provoking and full of meaning. The exhibition is currently touring Ireland. It is in Cork until Feb 14th and then moves on to Galway for 2 weeks.


Thought on Thursday - February - 11/02/2010

‘In a busy rushing world, where so much depends on passing exams, achieving a higher income, surrounding oneself with comforts and luxuries beyond the dreams of two thirds of the world, Bernadette lives poorly, asks for nothing but God’s love and achieves nothing but her response to that love.’ ~Msgr Kevin O’Callaghan

Today (Feb 11th) is the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. It is a day set aside to celebrate the anniversary of the apparitions witnessed by 14 year old Bernadette Soubirous and it also marks world day for sick people. Five million pilgrims visit Lourdes each year. Anyone who has been there will know it’s a significant and special place. Love bubbles everywhere in Lourdes. Its effects are felt by everyone. It is contagious, life giving, refreshing and so alive. Anyone who has been to Lourdes will often say, “If only I could bottle what’s here and bring it home’. It is at home but it may not always be as evident as it is in Lourdes. Today is a day to make sure that God’s greatest medicine called love gets shared. All of us are instruments of God’s healing love. We pray today for all who are sick and we include doctors, nurses, carers and anyone who needs our prayers on this special day.
