Today was a nice day for me, relatively speaking. I git to go with a couple of sweet ladies from my church to another area church for Mass, a Marian lecture, a peek at their neat gift shop (!) and some refreshments.
Best of all, I got to bring home our local traveling Schoenstatt Pilgrim Shrine:
Pilgrim Mother Shrine
I will get to keep the shrine and honor and pray to the Blessed Mother for a few days before she moves on to another home in our parish.
I also got a blessed candle due to today being candlemas. I love the richness of Catholic tradition!
