The Little Church in Barna
Oh, how my heart longs for
A place so far away
The little church in Barna
On the shores of Galway Bay
There's an Immaculate Queen
There in waiting
For all hearts and
All souls to come in
Into the love and the glory
Of Her only Son, the King
She's pleading and long and begging
For us to come back to him
In all Her regal beauty
With Her scepter and her crown
The glorious Queen of the Universe
Cared that I was around
I promised I'd carry the message
Of Her Queenship, near and far
So she took my hand to lead me
And lead me where "you" are
Her maternal heart is aching
Cause we don't listen to Her call
The Son of God is waiting
For us to come, one and all
Oh! Come to the feet of the Queen
So She and Her Son will reign
And bring hope and joy and peace and love
For the whole world to gain
If you give Her the honor in which She is due
Overflowing graces will follow you
O Queen of the Universe, triumph & reign
O Mary Immaculate Queen, we praise your name!
If you can't go to the church in Barna
On the shores of Galway Bay
Just open your heart and listen
And you will hear Her say
"I'm your Immaculate Queen
Come and meet my Son today."
By Barbara O'Malley
In 1967 while in Ireland,
Barbara and her husband Eamon were commissioned by a priest to
bring the devotion to Our Blessed Mother under the Title of Mary
Immaculate Queen back to America. Barbara and Eamon with the help
of their pastor, initiated the work enabling Mary to become better
known loved and prayed to under her title of Mary Immaculate Queen.
The central part of the work is
the Enthronement -and countless homes, schools, and churches have
been enthroned over these many long years. On May 31st, 1974 Monsignor
Wagner enthroned Mary Immaculate Queen in St. Pius X church and
school in Lombard, Illinois.
In 1981 after having witnessed so many countless blessings, Barbara
and Eamon wanted to have everyone share in the gratuitous love
of Our Blessed Mother. Consequently a 9-Day Novena was scheduled.
During the Novena, Barbara received the charismatic gift of healing.
Barbara shares a close relationship with the Mother of God and
feels that her gift of healing was granted through Mary's intercession
and reflects Mary's maternal love for all her children. The gift
of the Holy Spirit has been confirmed by the countless testimonies
of those who have been physically, spiritually, or emotionally
healed through her Ministry. She has continued to use her gift
publicly for more than thirty years. Barbara has traveled extensively
and literally has prayed over tens of thousands throughout the
United States and Europe. She also had the privilege of meeting
Blessed John Paul II personally on two different occasions.
"Miracles" is the deeply personal
story of Barbara's dramatic journey through life. In this book, she
recalls her early memories and shares how God later mercifully touched
In this riveting account, she shares her dynamic series of ups and
downs and the incredible surprise of her life in receiving a gift from
God to heal others as He had healed her.
The book is an invitation to share in God's mercy and healing presence.
If you, too, have felt broken, bruised and wounded, addicted, afflicted
and rejected. Or if you're searching for God in your life, the Lord
has a real surprise for you, too!
