Our Lady of South Carolina!

I learned so much today that I have enough material to post on for a week if I can remember it all. Suffice to say it was a very good pilgrimage for the family. We said the rosary on the way and at the shrine. We also all went to confession and then heard Mass. Fr. Stan Smolenski is a good priest and was a pleasure to talk with.

Just as starters, I finally learned why growing up we could say the rosary in 7 minutes flat and morning Mass could be done in less than 15 minutes. It was because we are Irish and our priests were Irish. The tradition for 400 years in Ireland was to be quick so as not to be caught. Thus carried over to the new world.
