The next year, june of 2011

In the year of 2011, in the beginning of June we had the blessing of  a big group of guests coming from Greece. The leader of the group was Bishop Cyprian.

We had planned a little trip for them, to visit the Mouse Park close by:

After that they came to us and we were so happy to experience a ceremony of water blessing that Bishop Cyprian led:

That ceremony was held close by the foundation of where we had planned to raise the chapel.

After the ceremony His Grace Bishop Cyprian led the group of faithful from Greece and us around on the piece of  land and blessed everything:

On the picture above my husband, Lärkan, is holding the bowl of blessed water, in which His Grace Bishop Cyprian is dipping a branch of green leaves in the water over and over again, and springkling blessed water all over the place! We were deeply moved by this blessing and experience!

After this ceromony, his Grace Bishop Cyprian told us that if we shared our plans and drawings for the little chapel, and told him about our plans  – via mail –  he and the group of faithful that wanted to travel with his in the summer of 2012, he would come back to bless the foundation and he process of building.

Oh, what joy!
