Turin Shroud Replica at Immaculate Heart – Immaculate Heart

The last of our 2017 Lenten talks was given by the incredibly talented friend of the parish, Mr Henry Creechan who has made a life size replica of the Shroud of Turin. After the 6pm Low Mass the Replica and another smaller image were blessed while the schola sang Pergolesi’s ‘Stabat Mater’ and Palestrina’s ‘Adoramus Te Christe’. Afterwards we enjoyed supper together in a packed hall before Henry’s fascinating presentation on the topic of the Shroud. The whole evening ended in the most perfect way- Solemn Latin Compline (Traditional Night Prayer) by candlelight before the illuminated shroud image. Thanks to Mr Creechan for bringing so much blessing by his talents and to Fr Morris for facilitating the event and for conducting the liturgies so beautifully. The Shroud will remain at IHOM for the next two weeks.

Archbishop Semple on the Liturgy


While I am apparently four years older than the Archbishop and hail from Britain rather than the USA, I can identify with every word of this superb address.

Lent

I Love Thee Jesus

My Love above all things.

I repent with my whole heart

of having offended Thee.

Never permit me to separate myself

from Thee again.

Grant that I may Love Thee always.

Then do with me what Thou wilt.

She added that most religions display their faith visibly through symbols and clothing and that Catholics shouldn’t feel embarrassed to do so too.

Thank you Carol for showing such a courageous example!

Purity and the Rosary

Despite all the ridiculous nonsense being promulgated in the wake of Amoris Laetitia by prelates and theologians who obviously have no desire for chastity or purity themselves and so claim that such an ‘Ideal’ is impossible!?!?

I would just like to point out that a daily Rosary to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and continued impurity are mutually incompatible!

Give it a try! –  And as Fr Z would say – Go to Confession!
