Contemplata aliis Tradere

A meagre contribution to the mission and work of the Order of Preachers: my reflections, thoughts, ideas and the occasional rant on matters mainly theological, philosophical and ecclesiastical, drawn primarily from my reading and experience of life and the world. Striving to be always Catholic, firmly Christian and essentially Dominican, flavoured with dashes of Von Balthasar.

Benedicamus Domino!" - Hilaire Belloc

Explosions hit London again...

Our Lady of Walsingham, bless and protect England, your Dowry!

Protect her people from harm, spiritual and physical.

Safeguard her from attacks of terrorists and the devil.

Guide the Queen and her government, that they may lead with wisdom, prudence and right judgment.

Give strength and courage to all who devote their lives to serving others; those in the police, emergency and medical services.

Lead the Church that she may be a beacon of light, salvation and peace for the people of Britain.

Comfort the sorrowful, allay the fears of the panic-stricken and bring the faithful departed into the embrace of your Son in your company with all the saints.

O Mother, we come to you and pray that peace and concord may be granted to London and to the realm. May all terrible attacks on innocent life cease, and may love colour our relationships and dialogue, that we may attain unity of purpose and intention by the inspiration of the Spirit.

O Lord Jesus Christ, in thee have I trusted; let us never be confounded!
