A pilgrimage of grace

Yesterday I had the privilage of taking a group of young people to the very ancient shrine of Our Lady in North Yorkshire at Mount Grace. The Lady Chapel at Osmotherly has roots which date back to the ninth century.
It is quite remarkable that this shrine still persists today and it is a great place of pilgrimage, set on the top of the escarpment of the North Yorkshire Moors overlooking the vale of York.
The prayers and the lives of these young people are now in the very best care.

you have visited my very favourite place. My parents live just down the road and we always go to the lady Chapel when we are there.
