The Mary Altar was all decked out, and the statue even more so.

Before the evening Mass we had a Holy Hour, with a procession, Adoration, with Rosary and lots of Marian hymns.

(Sorry for the blurry)

The details on the Mary Altar caught my eye especially yesterday. The, the – I don’t know what they’re called – show scenes from the life of Our Blessed Lady, beginning with her Immaculate Conception (deftly portrayed with SS. Joachim and Anna having a bit of a smooch) and ending with her Glorious Coronation.
