Image of the pregnant Mother of God will be displayed this weekend at Westminster Cathedral


Catholics in London and the Home Counties should be interested to know that "a unique relic image of Our Lady of Guadalupe will be on display in Westminster Cathedral from 12 noon on Saturday 11th December to 11:30am on Monday 13th December", according to Catherine MacGillivray, of the pastoral affairs department of the archdiocese of Westminster. There will be an Old Rite Mass in a side Chapel at 4.30pm on Saturday 11th December.

In a message to priests she writes:

Our Lady of Guadalupe is especially invoked in prayer for the sanctity of life as she is depicted as pregnant, and the image has been touring England and Wales over the past 9 months as a focus for pro-life events, Masses and vigils, as well as for general intercession. A summary of the places visited and further information about our relic image, the history of the apparition and its significance can be found at http://www.rcdow.org.uk/pastoralaffairs/dignityoftheperson/
I will be praying for a big turn-out at Westminter Cathedral and hope to pay a visit during the weekend. Supernatural help in combatting the evils we are fighting is urgently needed for our pro-life work to be successful, in my opinion.

From my experience of the Cathedral, it's open till about 7 p.m. on Saturday; from 7.00 a.m. till 7 p.m. on Sunday; and from 7 a.m. on Monday; but ... to be sure: contact edmundadamus@rcdow.org.uk or telephone 020 7798 9363

Deerstalker Tip to John Smeaton for this one.
