The Pilgrim's Knock Shrine Yearbook 2012 is a record of all the major events of the most recent Pilgrimage Season at Our Lady's Shrine in Knock such as the National Eucharistic Congress in Knock in 2011 and the celebration of the Centenary of the birth of Rt. Rev. Mgr. James Horan (1911 - 2011) who did such wonderful work for Knock Shrine and the West of Ireland. He oversaw the building of Knock Basilica, the visit of Pope John Paul II and the construction of an international airport - Ireland West Airport Knock. This 2012 Edition highlights the upcoming International Eucharistic Congress to be held in Dublin this year, giving the history of such Congresses and their significance in the life of the Church, with reference to the Congress Bell and Icons. This publication contains a great selection of Features, some of them by leading Irish Churchmen and Journalists such as Mary Kenny and John Waters. Details of the sudden passing of Knock's Parish Priest, Monsignor Joseph Quinn are included and also tributes to him. There is a Tribute, too, to the late Fr. Michael Kean, founder of Knock Marriage Bureau and an account of Knock's new Parish Priest, Fr. Richard Gibbons.
This Yearbook also features some Verse and Prayers, and for Gaelic scholars, there is an interesting Feature entitled "Sli an Phaidrin" which deals with the twenty mysteries of the Rosary. Also included is the Shrine's Programme of Ceremonies and Services and the List of Pilgrimages for 2012. Another useful item is the Guide to the Shrine, for first-time pilgrims.
