Walk With Mary to Receive

Many Blessings

 

Come and honour Our Lady on Her special day.   What a unique and wonderful event awaits. The Walk With Mary continues to be an extremely popular event in  which following Holy Mass a beautiful and grand procession proceeds through the streets of Melbourne on route to St Paul’s Cathedral.

Each year it is a deeply moving and spiritual event, similar to what is experienced at  major  marian shrines throughout the world.  Our Lady, and our loving  God, must indeed look kindly upon these processions.    This year we are delighted to have Archbishop Peter A Comensoli  to  lead the celebration. He is most enthusiastic regarding the celebration.  Let us show our love for Our Heavenly Queen, and on this special day let us entrust ourselves and our loved ones to Mary asking her care, protection and intercession. Through the centuries Christians have always received great blessings from processions in honour of Our Lady.

Christendom was spared from invasion more than once through public processions and the Rosary, and Our Lady asked for processions at Lourdes and at Fatima. She asks, not for Her sake,  but for our sake: She knows how Almighty God is moved when people process in honour of Her, and She knows the great blessings that are bestowed when these processions take place.

Of the many feasts in honour of Our Lady, the Annunciation stands out as one of the most deserving  of a special celebrations and processions.   There is probably  no other Marian Feast so closely related to our salvation.  At the Annunciation Mary was offered and accepted the unique privilege of being the Mother of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. With Her acceptance Jesus Christ is now  made flesh, incarnate in Her holy womb having been overshadowed by the Father’s love and filled with the Holy Spirit. 

 

Oh, how heaven must rejoice on this day, and so rightly we should rejoice  too, since this even marked the beginning of the fulfillment of all of God’s plans regarding our salvation. For all of the above reasons the Walk With Mary is always held on a Sunday close to the Annunciation. In the Mass please ask our Heavenly Father to bless all our endeavors to increase honour and love of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

 

Please do come, invite your friends, family, relatives and acquaintance. As we pray along the route, through the city of Melbourne, please do not forget to ask for God’s special blessings and favours upon us all and indeed upon our city and country. We are sure God will be pleased with your prayer and your presence when we come together to honour His Mother.
