when it was reported that the Virgin Mary, St. Joseph,
and St. John the Evangelist appeared to fifteen people.
Although I haven't been a practicing Catholic for all
of my adult life, I am nonetheless fascinated by
...especially this giant rosary:
I should really be honest here:
my favorite thing about Knock is the shops:
one after another literally overflowing
with knick-knocks, bric-a-brac and
paddy-whackery: ALL THINGS CATHOLIC....
But what really made an impression on me were
these "toys" -- and this is just in one shop....
God help us.
