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.

It's like a beautiful connection between heaven and earth 🌈, and this connection is fully realised in Jesus, who came to be the bridge between heaven and earth and so when we celebrate the Mass🍞🍷🕍, our connection with God in heaven is renewed, strengthened and made ever more real for us! Amen! ... See MoreSee Less
