The joy of a special visit

 Detail From The Visitation by Philippe de Champaigne, Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons As we celebrate the feast of the Visitation, when Our Lady brought joy and God's grace to her cousin Elizabeth, we remember the joy we felt during the visit of Mother Yvonne to our Province. Our look back at her visit features the choir of St John Bosco Arts College, Croxteth, who performed Jo Boyce's beautiful setting of the Magnificat for Mother Yvonne.   May each of us receive grace and blessings -  and bring each other joy. Happy Feast!   {youtube}fr5ilc7DAmg{/youtube}
