Simultaneous Pilgrimages in Reparation for the Reformation

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…

I liked this prayer

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.

From Fr Kimball

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,…

Lord grant us access to the Mass and the strength to face martyrdom if necessary.

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…

Pilgrimage

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…

Just an idea.....Share Prayer

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.

TLM Warriors!

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…

Rome 2016

Dear Fellow Crusaders,

I have a list of prayer intentions longer than your arm but over the years when there is a special event or occasion, I write them down and trot off to my nearest saint on a mini pilgrimage and have a word! This year my gorgeous, and most precious hubby offered to take me somewhere lovely to celebrate 20 years of marriage. We went to Rome and took two of our sons, many friend's intentions, including The Crusaders, plus all the lists of answered prayers. Your…

Reformation Saints - London

Yesterday (Friday 12th Feb) on the feast of the venerable George Haydock (PPR Tyburn Martyr - 1584) I went with Elizabeth, my Canadian friend, to Tyburn Convent, just a short way from Marble Arch,  where the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Monmatre live out a life of constant Adoration of the Holy Eucharist.  There I met some old friends including Philip Efans a reformation saint of Cardiff of a previous pilgrimage. The timing was all so appropriate I had just finished my first 9 Fridays. St…
