Mass for the living: ML5 Our Lady Statue

Mass for the living: ML5 Our Lady Statue The statue was in the grounds of the Monastery in Nunnery Lane Darlington until it was sold. The quote from the inside the card is from St Ambrose. He was elected a bishop by the people without even being a priest. So he had to be quickly ordained a priest to become a bishop. He was a very holy man. The text below is a passage taken from a treatise talking about the Eucharist, and the mystery that the spiritual life is. Some may find the theology a bit difficult.

Inside the card: 
Left hand side: 
Let us be assured that this is not what nature formed, but what the blessing consecrated, and that greater efficacy resides in the blessing than in nature, for by the blessing nature is changed … Surely the word of Christ, which could make out of nothing that which did not exist, can change things already in existence into what they were not. For it is no less extraordinary to give things new natures than to change their natures. . . . Christ is in that Sacrament, because it is the Body of Christ; yet, it is not on that account corporeal food, but spiritual. Whence also His Apostle says of the type: `For our fathers ate spiritual food and drank spiritual drink.’ [1 Cor 10:2-4] For the body of God is a spiritual body.

St. Ambrose of Milan, “On the Mysteries” 9, 50-52, 58; 391 A.D.:

Delivery & Returns

Goods are usually posted as soon as possible after the order is received. There is no post at the weekends or bank (public) holidays. If there is a problem you will be informed of it. Please be aware that we are often at the mercy of the postal services and delivery agents. They will usually give an expected date but there may be mitigating circumstances like weather problems, strikes etc to delay the delivery. We always get a certificate of posting on overseas goods. This is a free service by the post office and is not insurance. The Royal Mail will not try to trace an item until 15 working days after it has been posted for local mail. For overseas mail, once it has knowingly left the country they have no trace on it as it has now gone into another country’s postal system. It is possible to get tracking but this is an added cost.

Should you be sent the wrong item and the fault is entirely ours we usually do not ask for the item to be returned due to the high costs of postage involved, but we are willing to replace it with the correct item or refund the payment made.

If you decide you do not want the item for any other reason, you are free to cancel the order. If the item has already been sent, we expect it to be returned in the condition it left us, before you receive a refund. You will be expected to pay the return postage.

Problems or complaints

If you need to complain about something you’ve bought, always come back to us and we will do our best to settle the problem or try to trace a missing parcel.
