A London Sunday...
...beginning with Mass at Westminster Cathedral: even with the full choir away,the High Mass is glorious with chant. Had arranged to meet a young relative there and we had a happy day, spent partly in Chelsea at a friend's house where, following tea and cake,she helped me stack and store essays from the 2011 Schools Bible Project (prizewinners have been notified and names and schools will appear on the wesbite as soon as the school term begins). There is a hint of Autumn in the air, delicious coolness after the heat of Spain...I spent a lot of time enthusing about World Youth Day but young M. was expecting this,her sister L. having taken part in the Cologne WYD and loving it. We talked about Catholic things: M. very down-to-earth "The thing I like is that, whereever you are going, you just find out where the local Catholic church is, and check the Mass times, and you go there, and you know what you're going to, and what it's all about."
