Alleluia! Well, our 40 days of unremitting joy are nearly over. I’m not sure that my little flock really got the whole joy bit, but I’m sure they’ll cope with being back to misery again soon. (No, not ALL of you – in case you are reading this!)
Today always makes me think back to those many pilgrimages to the Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham. The Ascension Chapel was always one of my personal highlights. Not much to see at first – just an altar and a couple of candlesticks. Then you look up, and there sticking out of the plaster clouds are two brown feet. Glorious!
