Our Lady Philermos

Our Lady of the White Rose

Feast of the Triumph of the Cross


O Dear White Rose

Our Lady of Maltby.
Our Lady of the Maltfriscans.
Our Lady of the White Rose.

In 1981 Our Lady appeared to a group of teenagers in Maltby South Yorkshire, she gave them a prayer to say in greeting and parting and danger. She asked them to 'Pray always.' The Maltby-Franciscans or Maltfriscan Charismatic Community sprang from this moment in history and time.

O Dear White Rose
Whose petals enfold my heart.
Draw me to the centre of your sweetness.


Angels, Saints and Wolves

Archangel Gabriel

Our Lady Gate of the Dawn

Our Lady Full of Grace

St Francis of Assisi and the Wolf of Gubio
