Off to Wimbledon... bike tomorrow evening to greet the H. Father at the Nunciature. Today, a wonderful visit to the Community of Our Lady of Walsingham at the Abbotswick House of Prayer in Brentwood. An excellent place at which to pray and prepare for the Papal Visit. The Sisters wear lovely blue-and-white habits, with hoods...they are sort of goody-hoodies, a new Community and one full of hope and promise. Around the wide lawns and paths there are small shrines and a Way of the Cross. A glorious breezy sunny day with a hint of Autumn, the last blackberries ripening on the hedges. The community began a Novena to Our Lady of Walsingham today as the feast is in nine days' time, and of course were praying for the H. Father and the great events that start tomorrow.

Nasty media stuff, but some good material in the Daily Telegraph
