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


The Rosary Crusade of Reparation this year, through the streets of London from Westminster Cathedral to the Brompton Oratory, was attended by record numbers, the Oratory Church being filled with the Faithful standing in the main aisle for the final Benediction.

The celebrant for the closing devotions was Monsignor Keith Newton, Protonotary Apostolic, Superior of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, who thus for the first time very publicly united the great Marian devotion of the Anglo-Catholic tradition with their ancient living roots in the Church, truly a sign of Our Lady's tireless work of imploring God's graces for her Dowry.

This joyful event was as ever attended by a good crowd of members of the Order, both the aforementioned facts attested to by the photograph above.
