Thanks, Mary

• There have been various complimentary references on both radio and television to Mary McAleese's wonderful in-depth interview with Gay Byrne on 'The Meaning of Life' programme on RTE One recently.

I would like to highlight one particular section of her interview, which for me was most inspiring. I refer to her genuine and total appreciation of the Eucharist.

She expressed her feeling of heavenly peace which she experiences at Mass, especially from the offertory onwards -- through the Consecration and Elevation.
