The Martyrs' Walk...

...in June began at Tower Hill where Saints John Fisher and Thomas More were beheaded, and went through London to Tyburn, honouring the English Martyrs who died for the Catholic Faith in the years of persecution in the reigns of Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and beyond.

A DVD, based on the walk, and opening up the whole history, telling the heroic stories of some of the martyrs, explaining the background, etc, has now been made. Do get a copy! It could work well for a Confirmation class, or a prayer group or similar gathering. Contact the producers: mail@marysdowryproductions.org or follow this link.

When I am in business in London, I always try to visit the Tyburn convent; St. Etheldreda's church in Holborn; Charthouse; and Smithfield market. It is my own Martyr's walk. In fact I find London a treasure trove full of a Catholic past (Blackfriar's, Temple, St. Pancras, etc.). It is too bad that most of the people living in this great city are oblivious to this fact. God bless and keep up the good work.
