Report: Pilgrimage to Tyburn, 21 May 2011

On Saturday 21st May, the Sodality of the Five Holy Wounds held a most successful pilgrimage to Tyburn; some 40 people attended. Following a Missa Cantata, sung at the Altar of the Martyrs, Mother Lioba gave us a very interesting talk on the English and Welsh Martyrs and on the foundation of the Convent at Tyburn. The day ended with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and a visit to the memorial spot where the Martyrs were actually executed. We were delighted to have with us Msgr. Leo White, a former Prefect Apostolic, who himself received into the Church a young woman who was later martyred for her Catholic Faith.
