There was a very good audio piece on Vatican Radio concerning the older form of Mass and a conference to be held in the UK aiming to help priests to say the older form of Mass.  You might want to check it out.

    Hrmmm…. annoying – it hasn’t showed up in the RSS feed for VR.

  2. Mark: It did in mine.

    Why no comments on this post?

    Anyway, what a brilliant piece! However, I did cringe when the gent in the background chanted “Gloria in ‘ek-sell-seez’ Deo.” I suppose that’s why they’re all going back to school. I will forward the link to all my English friends, not one of which has any percepible belief in God; however, they find my evangelizing amusing.

    A somewhat related note: in one of the side chapels in Westminster Cathedral near the bronze plaque that lists all the bishops back to the reformation (on the left side as you enter from the street), there is an entombed skeletal figure in a glass case, if I recall correctly. Anyone know who that might be and what his story is?

    With aid of Our Lady, please pray for the reconversion of the British Isles!

    If I recall, the figure with a gold face mask (?) is St John Southworth, a priest martyred during the Reformation. http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/14165a.htm

    Mgr Langham has a number of posts on his blog (June 2007) about the relic of St John Southworth. http://westminstercathedral.blogspot.com/2007_06_01_archive.html

    AZ, Brian: Thanks for the info. That blog is fantastic (sorry, Fr. John)! Westminster Cathedral is an amazing place with an amazing past. I think its future will be quite interesting, too.

    Now, who can tell me where London’s and/or Westminster’s cathedral was before the Deformation? Surely not the Abbey church? Thanks.

    It was at old St Paul’s which burned down during the Great Fire of 1666 and replaced by Wren’s masterpiece.
