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

UPDATE - ROSARY on the COAST - SUNDAY 29 APRIL

Following our recent post HERE, we can confirm that the Order of Malta will be organising a group to pray the ROSARY on the COAST together on Sunday 29th April at 3pm.

Provisionally the location for those in or near London, led by the Grand Priory, will be near Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, which is an easy journey from London by train, and from Essex and Kent. More information will appear on this blog, and a Facebook group will be set up soon. We shall hopefully all meet up for a jolly lunch by the sea first, there are some fine fish restaurants in Old Leigh, a Roman fishing village.  Keep following us for details.

More general information may be had from the Rosary organisers' website, HERE, where those of you who are unable to join the Malta London group can join other groups or set up your own.  There is an interactive map. We would, however, ask that wherever you go, you do so visibly as a Member or Companion of the Order of Malta, or OMV. Our common witness is important; this is Tuitio Fidei.

Monsignor Armitage, one of our chaplains in the Order, and Rector of the National Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham, presents a video about this wonderful witness. The picture of Monsignore saying the rosary quietly in the snow in the Shrine grounds is very moving. Pray for him too.
Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us
Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us
Our Lady of Philermo, pray for us
