Additional note not in podcast: “In the early 20th century  a Catholic convert, Ms. M. Davies of Llantrisant underwrote the building of a memorial church in Ferndale (nearby) and also had a wooden replica of the statue Our Lady of Penryus carved, which is in the church today.” (from wikipedia)

Constant Procession tells of key apparitions of the Virgin Mary since she passed on from the world and how she serves humanity through Christianity.

The origin of these podcasts began with my book; Constant Procession.

I’ve read the entire book from cover to cover (Installments 1-49.) Each installment runs about 7 minutes in length.

To listen from the beginning

Installments since Podcast 50 are an extended series of additional stories about the history of the Virgin Mary that are not found in the book.

Constant Procession; the podcast; is published here every Tuesday morning.

An e-book copy of the book can be found on the website http://ConstantProcession.com
