May is the Month of Mary. As we focus our prayer on Our Lady, you can listen to our audio series ‘Full of Grace’.
Back to Europe today as we find ourselves in Belgium. The country has three official languages. Flemish Dutch, French and German. Flemish Dutch is spoken by 56% of the population, French 40%, and German 1%.
Flemish, as a term, does not refer to a language or a dialect but to the region, culture and people of a large portion of Northern Belgium called Flanders.
The power of prayer overcomes the difficulties we face with the COVID19 pandemic. We have been sent – through Facebook messenger, WhatsApp voice notes and email – recitations of this sacred prayer that we pray through the decades of the Rosary.
The aim is that we stand in solidarity with believers the world over and entrust our joys and sorrows (and everything in-between) to Mary.
Our audio is truly global – for example our Burmese Hail Mary comes from Yangon engulfed in a frightening coup that certainly needs our prayers.
