A thousand welcomes...

"Where love exists it works great things" - St Gregory the Great

"Would that we could all have the vivid Mary-like faith and devotion that breathes through the beautiful old Irish prayer.  During the dark days of persecution it was said by the faithful on receiving Communion:

Welcome, a thousand welcomes,
white love of my heart,
welcome within me!"

Excerpt from Mary and the Eucharist
by Fr Richard Foley, S.J. (Pg 45)
