Little blogging time this week as we are up in Brumington, inspecting the city and doing a lot of thinking. I managed tonight to go for the first time to the Birmingham Oratory. What a gem! For Corpus Christi there was a Solemn High Mass and a procession of the Blessed Sacrament. The choir was top draw.
We also paid a visit to the shrine of Blessed John Henry Newman to whose intercession we ascribe my recent appointment. The chapel is simple but very pretty. All of the altars throughout the church and chapels were ad orientem. How refreshing!
Back to the big smoke tomorrow. It's amazing to get out of London once in a while and find out how friendly the rest of the country is. We had two spontaneous offers of help from people today and others were simply obliging in the extreme. I could get used to that!
Pictures this weekend.
