I was very sad to hear of the death of Gwen recently. I knew Gwen and Mike through their love of the Latin Mass, and their devotion to finding Masses was amazing.
For any of you who would like to attend her funeral, it will be at Our Lady of Ransom, Eastbourne, at Noon on the 3rd January. The celebrant will be Fr Raglan Hay-Will, using the New Rite.
May she rest in peace.

I have spent the months and months since Amoris Laetitia came out muttering that the gates of hell shall not prevail. When the Dubia was issued, I rejoiced. When it was ignored, I wasn't surprised.
Now we have the Correctio Filialis. Perhaps ridiculously, a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders, I hadn't realised how aggrieved and hurt I was, in spite of the supportive mutterings between the like-minded among us over its obvious fudges and errors. I wasn't alone in feeling isolated and helpless to do anything other than pray, pray, pray.
Please read the Correctio here, at Rorate .
Prayers of thanksgiving for the first step!
