Quote of the Day
Mary is still today with our Church as it is charged to witness to Jesus in a culture where the presence of God is constantly being pushed back into the corners of public life and also into a position of less relevance in the lives and the hearts of many individuals. She accompanies the apostles of today in the New Evangelisation.

As at Pentecost she is there with us encouraging us to be present in our secularised culture, witnessing through the integrity of our lives to the love of Jesus through works of service and of evangelisation.

She sustains us to be present in that world untouched by worldliness.
Most Reverend Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin
