Photos from the Icon Visit to Esker April 16-17:

THE ICON CAME TO ESKER  Friday April 15th 6pm to Sunday April 17th 2pm.

Milo's photo, close up of the icon.

My photo of today in Esker, Sunday April 17th: a young boy was with his mother and grandmother, sitting near the icon. I was sitting across the aisle. The boy, Milo, (age 7, –  ’seven and a half’) took his Mom’s iPhone, went up close to the icon, and from about six inches took this close-up of Jesus, who looks about the same age as himself. I saw what he captured, and a little while later asked him if he would take the same photo for me, on my own iPhone. He did. I love it. Thanks, Milo! May he mind you!

Monday April 4th, Feast of the Annunciation of our Lord (this year), saw the beginning of the Pilgrimage of the Icon, as it was brought from Mount St. Alphonsus Redemptorist Church to St. John’s Cathedral in Limerick- the first of 26 Cathedrals that it will visit over the coming six weeks. Some Photos (by S. Devitt C.Ss.R.) from Day 1:
