Bishop leads devotions at Lee Road Shrine

Mary, 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 Sheehan.
