    That quote is surely divinely inspired - that priest sure understands what Mass is!

    "May we turn into what we consume".

I don't know how well you can see it, but there is a glow of light surrounding the statue of Our Lady. I'm the gal on the right in the black & grey plaid jacket;)

    Thanks for posting these Shae, what a beautiful procession. I can certainly see it and that glow looks exactly like what I have written about seeing at Mass around our Priest, the readers and all around the sanctuary on occasion.

    Glad you enjoyed the pics Don! And I'm happy the glow is visible to you. How blessed you are to be able to see a glow around your Priest and in the sanctuary. I'm never sure whether to believe some of the pics I see online, but I can say with certainty, that this one is legit 'cause I was there! lol

    The Rosary of Balloons

    On Sunday 15 October,
    the third day of the celebrations
    in honour of the 100th anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady at Fatima,
    a Rosary made of balloons was launched in a park near the Oratory in Christchurch.
    The beautiful photos that follow were kindly taken by Mr. Daniel Lim.

    [​IMG]
    This devotional celebration had been well prepared.

    If we said our prayers and prayed our Rosaries
    with faith the size of these blue balloons
    the world would be a different place!

    [​IMG]
    The Rosary Procession was over
    its Litanies had been sung
    the Holy Mass had been chanted
    the day was sunny
    and the celebration was blessed with joy.

    Moment of wonder.

    Before the Rosary of balloons could be launched
    it was necessary to obtain permission from the
    Christchurch International Airport Control Tower:
    "Go ahead Rosary Balloons!"

    It slowly lifted off.
    Polyphonic hymns accompanied it.

    What a sight!
    The crucifix gleamed in the sunlight.
    The air was still.

    [​IMG]
    We watched what we had launched.

    [​IMG]
    And indeed it was a beautiful sight
    thanks to the care and precision with which it was organised.

    For each balloon could lift only 1 gram of weight
    and the balloons together had to lift the Rosary's
    golden Crucifix and Miraculous Medal.
    Well done!

    [​IMG]
    Up and up it went until it was out of sight.
    May our humble prayers pierce the clouds
    and not depart until the Most High hears them
    through the intercession of Holy Mary.

    PS- I came across this online. I wish I was there but I was not. I think this is New Zealand. It is beautiful and I wanted to share it.

    Love this! We used to release balloons every summer at our Marian Pilgrimage while we prayed the Rosary, one balloon released for each Hail Mary. This summer we weren't allowed to. I think it has something to do with the environment. :(

    I'm not sure if we can do it here being close to an airport but this is an awesome idea!
