Walsingham on Saturday 29th September.

On Saturday our group joined in the Diocesan Pilgrimage to Walsingham. We were around 500 people in all from across the Leeds Diocese. It was a beautiful day, seeking Our Lady anew as our model for saying "yes" to God.
This year is the 70th anniversary of the 1948 Cross-carrying pilgrimage which fourteen groups made from different parts of the country in reparation for the evil of WW2. It was an inspiration to us about how we can carry our (baptismal) crosses in reparation today for the evil which we all know about.
The pilgrimage ended very poignantly, with the praying of the "Prayer for England" at the site of the original Holy House. We all came away much uplifted.
