Today we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Oxford at all Masses. The image of Our Lady, Mother of Mercy, in the Relic Chapel was left to the church by Hartwell de la Garde Grissell, an Oxford convert who became a private chamberlain and personal friend of Blessed Pope Pius IX. Pius IX granted special indulgences to those who prayed before the image, and devotion to Our Lady of Oxford has remained strong ever since. #oxfordoratory
