In the News: Shrine Bombed, Miraculous Statue Saved

Today at Spirit Daily came this story about a shrine in Sri Lanka that was bombed shortly after a reportedly miraculous statue was removed for safety reasons.

The story reported that "Mannar Bishop Joseph Rayappu had earlier removed the statue of Our Lady of Madhu to place it in a more secure spot."

Holy Mother, whether or not your image is present,
you never cease to look over your children with love.
Watch over this good bishop, and his flock,
Who work for peace and justice for the "least of these."
