A new start

I'm starting a weekly Lucenarium again in my new parish next Saturday evening at 7.00pm. If you would like to come you would be very welcome. The Postcode is LS27 7QR. A reminder of what the Lucenarium is. It is the weekly Vigil of Sunday, beginning with the lighting of candles as a symbol of the Resurrection. It includes Evening Prayer followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, a time a silent adoration and the proclamation of a Gospel of the Resurrection, ending with Benediction. The Lucenarium dates back to the Second Century.
A fairly big way to start the new week!

It's a hanging Pyx. Very common in mediaeval England. The photo is of Quarr Abbey church (Isle of Wight,taken two years ago. I'll take photos in my own church in due course.

Very apt picture, Quarr's hanging pyx is converted from the old sanctuary lamp. The inscription on it is: Fiat Lux.
