To hear God's word and to receive His salvific Eucharist in the grandeur of nature - it refreshes the soul.
Everyone joined in as Father prayed the "Hail Mary."
Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruitof thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of death.
Before ascending the ladder, Father blessed the crown.
Immaculate Mary, thy praises we sing;
Who reignest in splendor with Jesus our King.
Ave, ave, ave, Maria!
Ave, ave, Maria!
In heaven, the blessed thy glory proclaim;
On earth we, thy children, invoke thy fair name.
Ave, ave, ave, Maria! ...
All received Father's priestly blessing. Fr. Jack made himself available for individual blessings, too.
