Six years ago today Bishop Charles Henderson died, please say a pray for the repose of his soul. You can read his full obituary here, it starts, Bishop Charles Henderson will be remembered as a dedicated and tireless pastor and also as someone who led the way in putting into practice the Second Vatican Council’s documents on Christian unity and inter-faith dialogue.
To be honest with you this may be the case, but I'm sure that is not how he was introduced to God upon his death. Trumpets sounded and the Choirs of Angels burst forth in song, "Here stands the first Bishop to pray outside an abortuary in England."
There will be Mass for His Lordship today, in the Good Counsel Chapel.
[Bishop John Hine, Catholic auxiliary bishop of Southwark is joining the vigil at Marie Stopes abortion facility (where Bishop Henderson prayed), Brewer Street, Maidstone, Kent ME14 1RV, on Friday, 27th April 2012, the 44th aniversary of the Abortion Act. Bishop Hine is celebrating the 12.30 Mass at St. Francis's Church, Week Street, Maidstone. He is then joining in the vigil which begins with a prayerful and peaceful procession with an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to the Marie Stopes abortuary and concludes with a return procession at 2.30 p.m.]
