A Wonderful Day!

We did not let the rain spoil today's Ordinariate pilgrimage to Walsingham.
We began with a concelebrated noon mass at the National Shrine presided over by our Ordinary, Mgr Newton,who at the beginning of the mass, read aloud a Papal blessing.

After lunch we returned to church for Benediction. Mgr Newton led an act of concecration to Our Lady of Walsingham, the sorrowful and immaculate heart of Mary to plead special intercession for these times we live in.

Rain stopped play but it did not deter us...some made their way into the village by coach and car while many opted to walk along the old railway track in rosary procession arriving singing aloud and proud the pilgrim hymn...Ave, ave!

It was an emotional experience returning to the Anglican Shrine. Both Mgr Newton and Bp Urwin were clearly moved as they introduced the sprinkling service. We enjoyed a sincere and warm welcome to which we responded with heartfelt gratitude. The Ordinariate is proving that, it is indeed a thing most wonderful, to be in full communion with the See of Peter, the rock from which we were hewn!
