Ruth Peyton's funeral

This took place in SS Gregory and Augustine as I noted in advance; it was a beautiful occasion.

'Remember me at the Altar of God'. So said the dying St Monica to her son St Augustine. The offering of the Mass is the greatest thing we can do for the dead.

Ruth Peyton will not be forgotten.

There are more photographs here. Notice the saints either side of the altar: there are more still to come. This is part of the renovation of the church by Fr John Saward, the priest in charge.

Swine Flu compliant kiss of peace


Readers will be pleased to hear that there was no distribution of the Chalice at the London Colney conference, and none of that potentially lethal activity, which I fancy finds no place in the most ancient liturgical books, the collection of grubby notes and coins at the Offertory.
