A new "Motu Proprio" has been released on the "Year of Faith" Pope Benedict announced on Sunday. In his letter, Pope Benedict writes the "year of Faith" is a summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the one Saviour of the world.

The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime. It begins with baptism (cf. Rom 6:4), through which we can address God as Father, and it ends with the passage through death to eternal life, fruit of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, whose will it was, by the gift of the Holy Spirit, to draw those who believe in him into his own glory (cf. Jn 17:22).

To profess faith in the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spir…

We made the right decision, we can be sure!

Wonderful Link!

Dear Everyone on this Blessed Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary!

I have a gift for you today!

Go to the link below and you will see the solemn Crowning of Our Lady of Walsingham which took place here in Walsingham on August 15th 1954 - the Marian Year. Our Lady of Walsingham was crowned in the name of the Pope by the Apostolic Delagate Archbishop Gerald Patrick O'Hara.

You will see amazing and beautiful scenes....15,000 people attended. When the crowned statue of Our Lady of Walsingham was placed in the Slipper Chapel the two doves which had accompanied her in the Procession sat either side of her.

Mgr. Georges Tutto - the retired Hungarian Chaplain for The Church in England and Wales was present at this Crowing and he had told me the story of the Doves which he personally witnessed. I have now seen them for myself!!

Oh for the Day when England will return to Walsingham.....

Enjoy and pass it on to share...

Love and in union of prayers
