Blessing of the Foundations for the Mosaic

by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 19/04/2012 -

At the beginning of our Covenant  Mass in April Father David  blessed the foundations of the future Mosaic Prayer Garden. Since September last year a group centred around Paul McEvoy have worked to put in pathways and the foundation for the Mosaic Prayer Garden. This Mosaic, designed by Paul Cooper, portrays the Prayers of the Office written by Fr. Kentenich while he was a prisoner in Dachau. His response to this most difficult situation was to believe in God’s care. Let us pray together:

The sun makes ready for the night and invites us to enter the Cenacle.Paul Cooper's design for the Mosaic

There you implored the Spirit for the Church who freed her from the scourge of half-heartedness, guided her to the teaching of Christ and enkindled in her the spirit of the apostles and the martyrs.

That is how you want to work in our shrine: strengthening our weak eyes of faith so that we might see life as God sees it and always walk by heaven’s light.

In this light of faith let me see how the Father’s love wished to accompany me today. Let loyalty to our mission be my thanksgiving for the boundless gifts he has showered on me in love.

Glory be joyfully given to the Father through Christ with Mary, highly praised, in the Holy Spirit full of splendor from the universe now and in all eternity. Amen.
