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.

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

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

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

Lord have mercy on us.
Christ have mercy…
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.
