|The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham|
Apologies for the longer than usual gap between posts. I won't go into the various reasons but promise there will be a new post within the week. The new year has been rather stressful so far but last weekend with a group of friends I made my second pilgimage to The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham in Norfolk. As I discovered last year this holy place is a wonderful place to recharge one's batteries and put things into perspective. The accomodation and food were excellent and the clergy and staff are always helpful and welcoming. Bishop Lindsay Urwin seems to have the ability not only to inspire but also to pop up when least expected giving the impression sometimes that he is probably in several places at the same time! There are, as you might expect, several church services during the stay (including Sunday mass at the beautiful parish church in the village) and these are really something to behold.
