The Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

No, I had not forgotten. It's just been a busy and devoted day here. The garden has suffered because of drought.and there were only just enough roses and sweet peas to adorn the chapel where Our Lord  reigns over Saint Romain. And one or two left over with some sprigs of lavender to place on the plinth beneath the statue of the Sacred Heart in the body of the church. I'm delighted to tell you that against all expectations, the 'Michel Angelo' rose has bllomed. You will perhaps remember that I bought as a souvenir of visiting Pieta in St. Peter's. Its first flower is now with Our Lord in the 'Chapel of the Virgin', and it is even more beautiful than its photograph indicates. There are two more blooms in various stages of development. It seems a very strong and sturdy plant. Maybe it will produce for our next Mass here on July 21st.

In the meantime, with prayers that you all have a peaceful evening on this most beautiful and comforting Feasts.
God bless,
