Pontifical High Mass

Michael Campbell, the Bishop of Lancaster, celebrated Mass at the newly created shrine church of St Thomas of Canterbury and the English Martyrs on Sunday. He has given this - second church - to the Canons of the Institute of Christ the King, with the specific hope that they will be able to breathe new life into this beautiful place of worship.

I would very much have liked to be present - it's just four miles away - but my Masses in the parish kept me here.

It is surely good to see bishops reaching out to where there are vocations and a strong drive to re-evangelise to ask such people in to bring their talents and drive to otherwise struggling areas of the Church.

May God bless their endeavours.

I wish we had even one such Church in Scotland.
