Our favorite Parish Organist, Tom Cara, deep in prayer in the Chapel of the Apparition at Knock. The images of St. Joseph, Our Lady, St. John the Evangelist, the Angels and the Lamb on the Altar of Sacrifice represent the actual vision the people of Knock saw when the visitation took place in the late 1800's.
Today we visited the Shrine of our Lady of Knock. I concelebrated Mass with two other American priests and the Parish Priest from Knock. During the Mass I prayed for the parishioners of St. John XXIII Parish and especially the many hand written petitions that I collected from our parishioners and SJRS children.
