Item description for Reflecting at Knock: Before our Merciful Lamb by Thomas Lane...
This is a collection of ten reflections focusing on the apparition at Knock. Ireland, where the Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, and St. John the Evangelist appeared to 15 villagers in the 19th century, and where today stands a shrine to the event. Fr Lane examines the uniqueness of the shrine in helping us to cope with the contradictions and tensions in our daily lives, and to relate them to the sacraments of Eucharist. Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick that are celebrated at Knock with much faith and devotion. In the daily movement surrounding the historic gable wall, he points to many expressions of the mystery of the church.
