New English Marian Shrine


I think this statue is beautiful. Some good people in England are pilgrimmaging to the shrines destroyed by King Henry VIII during his "smash and grab" schism with Rome. That poor country suffers greatly to this day due to this kings slavery to his pride and sin. I love England and pray the C of E returns home. Go here to read the full story.

Something to meditate on: The indictment of England in this article applies equally to the US, Canada, and Australia.

My comment was not meant as an indictment - as I said, I love England and pray for her conversion every day. The US, Canada, Australia, Russia...every country needs to be converted.

True. Perhaps it is just easier to see in those who also speak English and are closest to us.

But the author is right. At the bottom, we (that is, practicing Christians and not just Catholics) are still a minority group. We had best get used to it.
