Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”                                                  St Catherine of Siena said, “We've had enough exhortations to be silent. Cry out with a thousand tongues - I see the world is rotten because of silence.”


It is Lent – it is good to go to daily Mass whenever one can, and especially in this holy season, but it is also good to go to Mass together. Catholics are not just individuals, but form a community; Members of the Order of Malta form a specific community, so it is good to do things in common.  For that reason, these Masses are arranged. 

Wednesday 28th February, the Conventual Mass, of the Lenten feria, will be sung in the Lady Chapel of St James’s, Spanish Place at 7pm by Father David Irwin, Conventual Chaplain ad honoremto whom we are very grateful.
