If I were to say that there is, in this country, a Catholic elementary school that requested for a priest to come in to assess their suitability as a trusted venue for the reservation of the Blessed Sacrament, would you be amazed?

If that priest took a glowing recommendation back to his bishop, recommending the school be granted this privilege, would you be amazed?

If the bishop approved the request, would you be amazed?

If, when the announcement of the bishop's approval was made, the students "literally shouted for joy," would your eyes tear up like mine did?

This is no fiction. Maryvale Academy in Ottawa, Ontario is the school. Read the article here, page 18 in the PDF (page 16 if you print it). This is from the Companions of the Cross newsletter for Winter 2006.
