Am I allowed to mention this? It's organised by the Latin Mass Society, so perhaps not.
On Sat 3rd June 2007 there will be a Solemn High Mass in Oxford in honour of Blessed George Napper, who was hung, drawn and quartered for his priesthood in 1610, on the gallows of Oxford Castle. After Mass there will be a procession through the streets to the site of the martyrdom, followed by Benediction.
I think English Catholics don't do nearly enough to honour their heroic predecessors to died in their hundreds to make the traditional Mass available to their fellows in the 16th and 17th Centuries. This event is pretty unique; the only thing like it is the 'Tyburn Walk' organised by the Guild of Our Lady of Ransom.
Novus Ordo Catholics can't understand why people were prepared to die rather than lapse into Anglicanism. They can't understand the Mass that priests like Napper brought back from Douay. They can't understand the cult of the saints. It is down to Traditionalists to preserve the memory of our martyrs and inplore their intercession.
The Mass will be a Traditional Solemn High Mass, 11.15 am in the Oxford Oratory. The procession will start at 2pm from the north end of New Road, next to the Castle.
Yes, you may mention it BlGeorge!
Even if it is the LMS! :D
