Toasting the health of our Holy Father, Pope Benedict!
The Northern Chapter of the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy met here at my little parish yesterday. Canon Olivier Meney, of the Institute of Christ the Sovereign King, gave an interesting talk on the Shrine of Ss Peter and Paul in New Brighton and on the work and history of the Institute in general. We had an excellent lunch and finished with Holy Hour and Benediction. I always find something quite moving about people praying together in silence before the Blessed Sacrament and especially so when it is priests praying together. Thank you Fathers for a very good day.
