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…Continue
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…Continue
A friend gave me this idea:
send a weekly postcard to His Holiness to ask him to join in prayer for Vigano.Continue
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 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.
It seems that UK subjects of Her Majesty's Government are finally beginning to understand that we do not live in a free country. "Tony Robinson" has been arrested and sentenced to 13 months in jail for reporting on Muslim gang rapes in Manchester - the government has put a media blackout on reporting it; our one trad SSPX school has been told that it is illegal to tolerate Catholic values and I think euthanasia has finally been outed as a tolerable and humane necessity of the National Health…Continue
There have been talks of starting a sort of "Companions of the Reformation Martyrs" group for several months, here in the UK, we have not officially got our "act together," as such but between us we have made a mini pilgrimages to some of our favourite Martyrs. On November 15th both Abbot Richard Whiting in Glastonbury and Hugh Faringdon of Reading Abbey were visited and prayed at by St Michael's parishioners and St Saviour's parishioners simultaneously. Several of us visited their places of…Continue

Tomorrow we visit Ufton Court - An Elizabethan Manor House used to hide Recusant priests during the reformation in the UK. Please pray that we have a grace filled and safe trip. Many thanks.

In my desire for the mundane and temporal, I forfeited the good things of eternity. Set aright my thinking, O loving Lord, and save my wretched soul from sin.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
I keep loosing this poster for First Saturdays file every time I have to reprint. I hope you don't mind me posting it here:

WILLIAM EMMANUEL KETTELER (1811-1877)
MY PRIESTHOOD AND A STRANGER
For what we are and for our vocations. In the case of the famous Bishop Ketteler,
to a simple nun, the lowest and poorest lay sister in the convent.
The year was 1869 and a German diocesan bishop was sitting together with his guest,
Bishop Ketteler from Mainz. In the course of their conversation, the diocesan bishop came
to the topic of his guest’s extremely blessed apostolate. Yet,…
Fr Kimball sent this for our eddification - Ido hope it may benefit your family too.
29-31st was the UK Canterbury Pilgrimage. My dear husband and I made base camp and foraged for food in local supermarkets. Our 2 teenagers completed the 65 miles. Please pray that they allow God to use their strengths for His greater glory.
As a consolation prize for not being able to do the actual pilgrimage we visited St Dunstan's Church in Canterbury where King Henry II did his public penance in reparation for the crime against St Thomas a Becket. If I understood correctly inside this…
Yesterday, I went on a reconnaissance pilgrimage with a couple of friends to try and find the medieval Pilgrim’s Trail from Winchester to Bishop’s Waltham in Hampshire – UK. It would naturally lead onto Southampton, across to France and eventually to Santiago de Compostella. I offered (...and continue to ofer!!) the aches and pains of the 6 hour walk for the intentions of the people in this group.
S.t Peter and St. Paul, St. Augustine and St. Monica please prostrate yourselves…Continue
It seems that if you share prayer and fasting with a friend it becomes easier. I have a "senior brain" which means that I forget things quickly. If I make a promise to say a novena with my pal I text her she gets her reminder and I know I have done the prayer for that day... I have posted Crusader novenas on other groups that I belong to the St John Bosco one worked really well and is still bearing fruit now.
Many of us make sacrifices in order to attend the TLM, but I thought that you might be edified to hear this....
My youngest boy asked of he could go to Mass 12 pm on Saturday but we could not attend or bring them back ourselves. The result of our suggestion was that three boys - one friend and his brother - were dropped off and walked 12 miles back. They prayed the rosary to help them through the tough bits.
I have to admit I was impressed we greeted them at 5:30pm with…Continue
