the Mother of Jesus, shows us our ultimate destiny, Bishop Fintan Gavin told
the congregation at the annual devotions at the Lee Road Shrine on August 15th,
and Mary also shows us what it means to be a disciple of the risen Lord now.
“Mary is portrayed in the Gospel as
the ideal disciple. She embodies what we, as church, as disciples of the Lord,
are called to become,” the bishop said in his homily at the special Mass which
was also attended by Cork’s Lord Mayor Cllr John Sheehan and Lady Mayoress Aedamar
The Mass and Devotions at the Shrine celebrate the
Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady.
