Sister Mary ELizabeth and Sister Maria Salome

What an amazing and grace filled weekend! We went up to visit the Sisters, and to attend their Oblation. We discovered a rather beautiful hidden grace:

...I've been turning things over in my head - how the Society of the Apostles of Jesus and Mary (SJAM) was the original and remained the private name for the SSPX as designated by Abp Lefebvre. As Sr Mary Élisabeth discovered, it is the name given in the original Statutes!…

Old Catholic England (CTS -Mark Elvins)

Touching Wood

this saying has remained popular. It of course originated from the touching of  the wood of the True Cross, the most prized relic. Many a Catholic would venerate such a relic before setting out on a hazardous task.  Today most people are satisfied with touching any piece of wood as a substitute. By tradition the wood of the Cross  was from the aspen tree, which is why it always trembles.

Oxford Visit

I just came back from Oxford (I'm attending some lectures - The Great Ruins: Six English Medieval Abbeys in Context) Quite interesting but I read out that the general public can still attend lectures and classes (not tutorials) really cheaply - Basically you could study full time using Oxford University free / min cost Lectures and classes - cool for students taking a year out I thought...Especially if you wanted to learn beginner Latin and Greek or Medieval Philosophy, Logic, Metaphysics…

St. David - Patron Saint of Wales

Dear Crusaders,

On Thursday, 23rd October 2018, I trundled across the M4 into Wales - to The Church of St. David, in Llanthony an ancient chapel that provided a recuperation place and a haven of peace for the tired St. David (Sant Dewi in welsh) in the 6th Century, after serving the missions across the mountains of Wales on foot and sometimes on a mule.  I was distracted by so many earthly concerns that I'd like to request prayers for the intentions of that pilgrimage together with…

Pilgrimage to Aylesford - St Simon Stock

yesterday on the 18th August I took a pilgrimage to the Carmelite monastery in Aylesford where St Simon Stock received the scapular from Our Lady of Mount Carmel in a vision. She promises that those who wear the brown scapular will not perish in the eternal fire. 

The friary was founded by Simon De Montfort of the Crusades who had rescued the devotees of  the…

St David Lewis mini pilgrimage July 2018

The list of prayer intentions for the St David Lewis pilgrimage had several immediate answers: a baby was saved from abortion, an apprenticeship is being discussed, the headaches of a gentleman with a brain tumour are not related to the tumour...

Lord God almighty through the intercession of the Saints of the Reformation grant us the miracles that will save our souls . Amen.
