I've been asked to help publicise the Blessed Sacrament Procession this Saturday 20th October starting at Westminster Cathedral at 3pm and processing to St George's Cathedral at Southwark for Benediction at 4.15pm. A great thing for as many people as possible to go along to and give public witness to one of the great Truths of the Faith - Our Lord's Real Presence among us in the Most Holy Eucharist.
What a great thing this would be for all our cathedrals to put in in the Year of Faith. Here in my own diocese I understand that there was some suggestion of a large Blessed Sacrament Procession between the Blessed Sacrament Shrine in Liverpool city centre and the Cathedral for the Jubilee Year of 2000 but for some reason it never came to anything. Obviously, the presence of the Blessed Sacrament Fathers ministering in the heart of the city is a wonderful focus and witness to the Faith and a Blessed Sacrament Procession through the streets of Liverpool city centre with parishes from all over the diocese taking part would be a fine public act of devotion and witness for the Year of Faith.
