CWN Editor's Note: “The arms of the Virgin Mary in a praying position still show how fundamental the life of prayer is, which comes as a message of hope from this Shrine,” Pope Francis said of the Shrine of Our Lady of Knock. “You know that in the apparition of Knock the Virgin does not say a word. But even her silence is a language; indeed, it is the most expressive language that is given to us.”
