A happy evening...

...as we gathered at Westminster Cathedral for Mass and then the History walk. One of the concelebrants at Mass was Father Julian Green, who is a lecturer at Maryvale. I went to find him to say hello after Mass, and we had a great chat.   I have so enjoyed my studies at Maryvale and hope to go on to do more...

But my big exams are on Saturday and a lot depends on that...

The History walk, planned months ago, was on a Royal theme and we went through St James Park, and had planned to finish at Buckingham Palace.  We told ourselves that it was absurd to join a great queue of people just to see a formal notice on an easel announcing the birth of the Royal baby...but we joined the queue anyway, and it was all fun and happy, with people taking photographs and everyone - including the police - hugely enjoying themselves. A little bit of history...

We always finish the History Walks with prayer, so gathered together in a small circle and prayed for the Queen, and the Royal family, and the new baby Prince, and our dear country...
