Every one of us has a unique role to play in this world. Everyone has a guardian angel watching them. I receive letters from people all the time who have lost people to suicide and who tell me that they wished the person had known that they were not alone. Ask for help. You will get through it,” appealed the widowed mother-of-four, who says she has been seeing angels since she was a baby.“I see angels physically, as I see a person standing in front of me. I see the Angel of Hope here in Limerick. He always has a male appearance and is beautiful, full of light and a towering figure holding a torch. Limerick is a peaceful city and its people should be proud and not be ashamed,” she said.The 59-year-old author whose book ‘Angles in my Hair’ spent seven weeks on The Sunday Times’ bestsellers list, said: “Everyone has only one guardian that never ever leaves them, not even for one moment. Your guardian angel never tells you to do anything wrong or hurtful, so if you are doing this you are not listening to your angel,” she said.Lorna, who is a Catholic, said angels are common to people of all religions.Limerick Prison chaplain, Fr John Walsh said people travelled from as far as Donegal to hear Lorna speak.“People stayed until after 11pm to speak with Lorna. There wasn’t even standing space and there were people of all ages. I think Lorna’s visit affirmed that we may be shy spiritually are not afraid to reach out. I believe they left with a sense of renewed hope,”he said.The event raised €3000 for the Simon Community and the St Joseph’s Church Restoration Fund.
