This years procession seems bigger than ever.
I am impressed: this week the Ordinariate was on the streets walking between Westminster Cathedral and the Oratory, last week it was a Blessed Sacrament procession between he Cathedrals of Westminster and Southwark.
I am not sure processions are part of Anglican Patrimony per se but daring to bring Christ onto the streets and into the public forum definitely is.
Remember the Ordinariate needs help with shoe leather.
Mgr Keith Newton led the Rosary Crusade from Westminster Cathedral to the London Oratory. Some two thousand people took part, led by Mgr Newton, the Knights of Malta and the Little Brothers of the Oratory. As well as hymns to Our Lady, three decades of the Rosary were prayed and on arrival at the Oratory, the Pilgrims consecrated themselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Mgr Newton preached to a packed Oratory mentioning that it would be Blessed John Henry Newman's feast day on Sunday (if it were not Sunday) and of his and Father Faber's devotion to Our Lady, not because of what she had done, but because of what God had done in and through her. After Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Mgr Newton led everyone in the Salve Regina. thanks
