Here are some photos I have pulled out of my phone, in no special order.
I visited Greenwich the other day and, coming up from the Thames into the great quadrangle I saw this in the pavement. The birthplace of a monstrous fellow.
On a better note, I had a very nice look around Westminster Cathedral with a friend. I had no idea that on the back of the great Crucifix in the sanctuary there was a Stabat Mater.
Here you can see the altar from the side. The little wall behind was actually moved at huge expense before the Holy Father’s visit last year precisely so that he wouldn’t say Mass ad orientem.
This Rolls Royce has little wipers on the headlights.
Meanwhile, back at Greenwich, Fr. Finigan is still standing at attention.
Don’t know why this image is smaller. Oh well. It was a really nice day.
Just coming out of the National Gallery, Sainsbury Wing where the older stuff is. I spent a couple happy hours comparing Sienese and other Tuscan Mary and Child paintings.
On the way home, I grabbed a couple of trout of the shelf at a Tesco. They had an interesting package, nicely vacuum-packed, which accounts for the little ridges on one side. The ridges didn’t affect either the cooking time or the flavor.
So far so good. My trip is winding down to an end soon… sniff. I should have made it longer.
Thanks to all of you who have sent donations! Here are some of the kind people’s initials, whom I always note down and whom I remember in prayer. I will soon again say Holy Mass for the intention of benefactors which is my pleasure and duty. Your kindness is always appreciated and my spirits are lifted each time I get a notification that a donation has come in. I hope I got everyone…. if not, your names are noted down elsewhere.
