The start of the third day, Sunday, is exciting, since having walked about 20 miles the day before we have only about 11 miles aheard of us. The sky was a bit overcast, which was a relief after the sun of Saturday. On the final day we carry the processional statue of Our Lady of Walsingham.
|Every day whichever of our priests isn't saying the High Mass has to find a time and place|
to say a private Mass. This was in St Etheldreda's in Ely and Oxburgh chapel on day 2, but at
Great Massingham we made do with a makeshift Altar.
|Leaving from our (early) lunch stop.|
|Arriving in the Shrine with the Director, Mgr John Armitage.|
|High Mass in Reconciliation Chapel. The contrast of daylight coming from behind the Altar|
and orange arc lamps in the ceiling mean that black and white photography looks a lot less strange
Veneration of our statue of Our Lady of Walsingham and blessing from our chaplains concluded the formal part of the pilgrimage, but we also have a sung Mass on Monday morning in the medieval Slipper Chapel, which forms the heart of the Catholic Shrine.
