Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

REQUIEM FOR HENRY BENEDICT, CARDINAL DUKE OF YORK

Frequent are the occasions upon which Requiem Masses, both funerals and memorials, are celebrated in the Church, for patients of the Hospital and Hospice, and members of the Order of Malta and their families.

Rarely however are such grand occasions seen as that celebrated on 22nd September 2007, the 200th Anniversary Requiem of Henry Benedict Stuart, Cardinal Duke of York.

His Excellency Bishop Bernard Longley celebrated Pontifical Mass of Requiem for the repose of the soul of the man who might have been King of England.




Requiescat in Pace.
