Permit me to take a brief moment of your valuable time to share some brief words.
Sometimes, using too many words just complicates the real message!
Your visit to this site is sincerely appreciated. We have taken a while in re-launching
this site but I trust it has all been worthwhile. Whilst we have endeavoured to promote
devotion to Our Lady of Europe, we have also borne in mind the prized message of
the "Gospel" as a top priority; you will always find Mary with Jesus.
end, I hope that the look and feel of the site aids in the Shrine's Message -after
all, the content is what is important! Yet, if we can present the "Shrine's Prayerful
Song" in an appealing and respectful format, our aims can then truly be "in progress".
You, dear visitor, can be the only judge.
The content is wide and varied. It is difficult
to precisely pin-point everything that visitors will look for. So we have included
information from a historical background to the Shrine's own spirituality. Add to
this, other facilities and services that will create community and rapport. Please
note, that we may also have inadvertently omitted or not gone deep enough in certain
issues. If that is the case, just let me know. Many hiccups are sometimes tackled
by sheer 'trial and error'.
I would like to highlight that throughout 2008-2009 we
celebrated our 700th Jubilee of devotion to Our Lady of Europe in Gibraltar. It is
wonderful to feel protected by Our Lady's intercession! We commended Europe and Gibraltar
to Our Lady; that She may also guide us in directing our much loved Shrine according
to God's will.
Well, I said I was going to be brief so I'll keep to my word. Just one last
thing. This site will be a success if both of us, not only frequent this site, but
also, make the Shrine's message our own. Only then, can we have found success! If
we can derive a little happiness on the way... all the better!
