These three photos are rather historical. This past Saturday, January 5, Holy Mass was celebrated according to the usus antiquior Roman Missal of Pope St. Pius V over the tomb of Edward the Confessor in Westminster Abbey in London.
I thank divine providence for the opportunity (grace) to have been there as well as the Oratorian Fathers from London's famed Brompton Oratory for hosting the Mass.
Needless to say, this was a titanic event and a first of its kind after nearly five-hundred years.
During the Mass I though of all the dead who wished and prayed for such an event. All those holy souls who attended the seminary of the Westminster Archdiocese, St. Edmund's College, Ware. Fr. Ronald Knox, a convert to Catholicism whose father was the Anglican Archbishop of Birmingham. John Henry Newman, a priest convert from Anglicanism who was later created a cardinal by the Pope.
