Shrine for the Word

image

The Synod held in Rome in 2008 was based on the theme of The Word and the importance of the Bible in the life of the Church, and we have a shrine in our church dedicated to giving the Word of God a place of honour.

It is in the form of an eagle with its wings outstretched, holding the Bible (The Word of God) on its back to signify the majesty and divine inspiration of what is found written in the Bible.

The eagle is the symbol of St.John the Evangelist and of his Gospel. John's is the most mystical and spiritually uplifting of the four Gospels, contemplating God in the same way that the eagle was meant to be able to look unflinchingly into the eye of the sun. His Gospel, like the eagle,soars to great heights in contemplating the mystery of the Word made flesh.

Thanks to Noel Hoare for this beautifully sculpted piece of granite which holds a special place in our beautiful church.

God Bless, Fr. Liam P.P. Moderator.
