We have been so lucky with the weather here in Ireland over the past week, it has certainly helped with the foundations going in smoothly.I got a call from Mark the builder early on Wednesday morning asking if I had a blessed Holy Medal at the ready to set into the foundations, as they had already started to pour. A mild panic set in, as this was a tradition I was completely unprepared for and needless to say NO, I didn't have one to hand . However, one quick phone call to my mother-in-law and all was sorted! We now have safely encased in our foundations the following:-
- A medal of Our Lady. This was blessed at the children's service that our girls had attended, at the Murroe Mission earlier this year.
- A blessed medal of St Anthony, apparently he will help us find the things we are always loosing!
- Finally a very special medal of Our Lady of Fatima, blessed and brought from Fatima by Mr C's aunt.
