|St Margaret Mary, by Suzanne Kent|
For centuries relics of the supposed spear were seen as very powerful symbols - and men of power wished to harness this power of the weapon that drew blood and water from the heart of Jesus to advance their own interests extend their power.

St Margaret Mary and St Richard Gwyn pray for us. Help us to place all our trust in the pierced One - who is truly the Son of God. Help us to burn with the love of God. And when we fail to love Jesus with all our heart help us to pray , with St Richard: 'Iesu, trugarha wrthyf' ("Jesus, have mercy on me").
