Thanks to Orla Roche for sending on this pic of St Mary's yesterday, with a rainbow in the background. The Rainbow is mentioned in the Bible as a sign of God's promise! "I set my rainbow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the Covenant between me and the earth!" Genesis 9:13.

Amen! ... See MoreSee Less
