LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

Decisions, decisions . . .

Now : as you already know, both from me and from others, this Thursday to Saturday is the Quarant ’Ore at Our Lady of the Rosary, Blackfen : and I obviously enthusiastically commend it (particularly in the small hours, if you can conveniently manage to be there then) not only because the ability to have a prolonged quiet time with Our Blessed Lord is such a precious and valuable thing, but also because your prayers will undoubtedly benefit whoever or whatever you are praying for, and you, and that splendid Church . . . so do your best to be there at some point.

At the same time, next weekend is also the Latin Mass Society’s annual Oxford Pilgrimage, with a Solemn Mass at Blackfriars, and then a Procession in the afternoon . . . during which, I understand, the Archbishop will bless a new Memorial to some of the Martyrs of Oxford : and I obviously encourage all who can to attend this as well.

Sadly, it won’t be possible to do all of both . . . but I believe it will be possible to be part of both, thereby not only showing your support for them both, but also making it clear to others that they deserve support . . . and I hope and trust that it will win you a Brownie point or two from the Holy Saints and Angels !

. . . and as I am hoping to be present at at least some of both events, I do hope to see at least some of you at one or both of them.

  1. err, this weekend is also the celebration of 40 hours devotion at the Oratory, Oxford. So how about you see Our Lord there and at Blackfriars? xx
