Saturday 4 May 2024

Today is the feast of the English Martyrs. We placed on the altar for Mass today our set of four reliquaries containing the relics of Edmund Campion, Oliver Plunkett, Henry Garnett, Robert Southwell, Henry Walpole, Edward Oldcorne, John Southworth, Thomas Whitbread, Thomas Garnett and Thomas More.

Faith of our fathers, living still
In spite of dungeon, fire, and sword:
Oh how our hearts beat high with joy
Whene’er we hear that glorious word!

Faith of our fathers! Holy Faith!
We will be true to thee till death.
