Mark's Reflection

I asked fellow pilgrim Mark Oakly what his response to Sr Anne Derwent's question at the Thanksgiving Mass - how has this experience affected you?
"In relation to how I have become different from attending the Canonisation, it would be that, to use the concept from the Lectio Divina for this weekend, my 'God-shaped hole in my heart' has been enlarged by the experience so that I am aware it has happened (God has more room there) and I feel more confident in what I should be doing in my life and work.
The challenge is to keep it enlarging and not shrinking! 
I plan to keep the example of St Mary of the Cross before me, where it should be a great help."
