Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham

O blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Walsingham, Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother, look down in mercy upon us, our parish, our country, our homes, and our families, and upon all who greatly hope and trust in your prayers, (especially...) By you it was that Jesus, our Savior and hope, was given to the world; and he has given you to us that we may hope still more. Plead for us your children, whom you did receive and accept at the foot of the Cross, O sorrowful Mother. Intercede for our separated brethren, that with us in the one true fold they may be united to the Chief Shepherd, the Vicar of your Son. Pray for us all, dear Mother, that by faith fruitful in good works we all may be made worthy to see and praise God, together with you in our heavenly home. Amen.

Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us!

Walsingham is a wonderful shrine that forever reminds us of our Catholic heritage.

Doesn't it just? & it's quite modern too!

Perhaps a mention of your PPs special devotion to OLW as a former Administrator of the Anglican shrine might be in order.

As someone who converted to Catholicism in the late eighties, I must confess that the Anglican shrine still holds a special place in my heart, even now. Indeed, it may still be a special place for Fr Colven too. I haven't seen him since he was at Gloucester Road. I hope he is well. I dare say that he won't remember me, but suffice to say, he is one of the many (former) Anglican clergy who helped me make my way to the Church.

I sure my pp would be pleased to see you - and, yes, he keeps devotion to Our Lady of Walsingham alive here in Kingsland.
