When our Mother's Day plans fell through late last week, Laura decided she'd like to finally make the pilgrimage. We packed a picnic lunch and headed over for the 12:30 Mass. As a result, your humble correspondent was able to grab some photos of the blessing of Holy Hill's Grotto of Our Lady of Fatima. I had hoped to post these pictures yesterday on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, but the folks at Charter Communications accidentally slashed their own fiber optic cable, rendering me internetless.
Nevertheless, we hope you'll enjoy a few snapshots of the day.

I've got some others of the grounds that I hope to share in a future post. Some of them were outside shots that Matt wasn't able to grab on his pilgrimage because he drove over in the middle of a blizzard.
