Just as...

...I was reading a feature about the Carthusian Martyrs, in the latest edition of OREMUS, magazine of Westminster Cathedral, there was a knock at the front door. It was a neighbour, delivering a parcel that had arrived yesterday while I was out. A big packet of handbills fpr the Martyrs Walk on Sunday 20th June. We meet at St Sepulchre's churchyard, opposite the Old Bailey (nearest tube: St Paul's) at 1.30 for 2pm.From there we will be walking along the hallowed Tyburn Way, in the footsteps of the Martyrs, stopping at the church of St Anselm and St Cecilia for prayers, and finishing at Tyburn Convent for Benediction. There will be opportunities for confession at Tyburn, and a blessing and investitute of the Brown Scapular at at St Anselm and St Cecilia's.

No need to book, just turn up. Wear comfortable shoes and suitable clothjing - we'll be walking whatever the weather!

We need the inspiration and the intercession of our martyrs today - there are tough times ahead for Christians in Britain.
