The Healing Light

The small book edited by myself--The Healing Light of the Rosary, has this statement:
“The Jews did not listen to the voice of God, that would have led them into the full and peaceful possession of their kingdom. But when the fulness of time had come, there arose among them, one, who put that word before every other consideration. Mary’s Yes to God opened humanity to the voice whose claims are stronger than any other, announcing that there exists an inner land where alone we can find rest.”

The author of those lines, who lived with the troubles of Northern Ireland and knew of the routine of occupational forces in the streets of her native Belfast would invite us, in the Rosary Prayer Group, to linger in love with the Lord! She would say that if we do so, springs of living water will rise in the barren land of life
