A glorious Hallelujah Chorus was sung at the end of Mass this morning at Holy Ghost, Balham, to mark the feast of Christ the King. A number of us gathered for lunch at the presbytery, hosted by Fr Stephen Langridge of Southwark Vocations, for a World Youth Day reunion - we drank a toast and recalled giant grasshoppers and horrible ants and scorching heat, and the thunderstorm and the blessed cool that followed and the glorious night vigil of prayer with the Holy Father...I will never forget Madrid and WYD 2011 and it was good to be talking and remembering together.

This evening, another excellent gathering at St Joseph's, New Malden part of the Confident 2B Catholic series...we watched a DVD on St Edmund Campion and then talked about this magnificent hero-saint and his life and its message...
