PRO-LIFE NEWS:

Dear Pro-Life supporter

On Tuesday 21st May, the Vigil of Saint Rita, please pray and fast for the end of abortion and euthanasia in this country. Please especially pray and fast that abortion up to birth will not become legal in the UK. Facebook has put a limit on the number of people we can Invite to join the day, so please use the INVITE option on Facebook to let others know about this day, https://www.facebook.com/events/1590210478486255/

Fasting
Fast from all food except bread and water for the day
Or
Fast from a particular food or luxury, e.g. chocolate, alcohol, cigarettes, TV.
Fast from whatever you can given your state of health etc, but make sure it is something that involves a sacrifice to yourself.

Prayer
We are asking people to say a Rosary (or an extra Rosary if you say it daily already).

You could also offer an extra effort such as going to Mass (or an extra Mass) on the day, or going to Adoration. You can even pray before a closed tabernacle if Adoration is not available near you.

God bless

    Dear Supporter   Hundreds gathered in Parliament Square on May 15th as the Criminal Justice Bill went to the report stage in Parliament. Pro-life organisations from across the country united under one banner of ‘No, to abortion up to birth!’ and were joined throughout the rally by various MPs including Carla Lockhart, Ian Paisley and Daniel Kawczynski
 
Four amendments tabled to the bill could dramatically affect the abortion law in the UK. Amendments from MPs Stella Creasy and Diane Johnson could see the introduction of abortions up to birth as well as sex-selective abortions happening at a great risk to the physical and mental health of women and of course with complete disregard to preborn children.
 
Two of the amendments could potentially limit abortions, with MP Liam Fox asking for babies with down syndrome not to be allowed to be aborted after 24 weeks (in keeping with the rest of the abortion law) and MP Caroline Ansell asking for a reduction in law for abortions generally from 24 weeks to 22 weeks in keeping with improvements for the survival rate of premature babies.
 
The prolife movement presented a united front. Representatives from these organisations were present in Parliament Square and spoke to the crowd: Abortion Resistance, ADFUK CBRUK, Christian Concern, Citizen Go, The Good Counsel Network, 40 Days for Life, Rachel’s Vineyard, Right to Life, SPUC, Voice for Justice and of course, March for Life UK.
 
The statement from March for Life UK read as follows:
“The fact that abortions are largely illegal after 24 weeks is something that not only saves the lives of preborn children in later gestation but also helps protect the health, both physically and mentally, of women. We need to take a serious and honest look at the root causes of later term illegal abortions – how are they being enabled? It’s time to remove the smokescreen of counterfeit compassion and look at what really constitutes healthcare.
Abortion providers themselves are dishing out abortion pills through the post, something which is impossible to do in a manner in keeping with the wellbeing of women.
 
Rather than further liberalising our abortion laws we need to ensure there’s sufficient support for women and couples who are facing challenging pregnancies or who are feeling overwhelmed by parenthood. For those who do break the law, justice doesn’t have to be handed out like a tonne of bricks, it can be administered sensitively and appropriately but no woman should be going through the ordeal of a late term abortion and dealing with the aftermath, particularly in the isolation of her own home which is what will end up happening more frequently if so called ‘decriminalisation’ is enacted. We stand united, We stand firm in saying ‘No, to abortion up to birth!’”
 
Watch the speeches here:   DONATE TODAY                               Please keep praying for this, thank you for all your support.

God bless
Ben, Sarah and Isabel   DONATE TODAY

Our Lady of Walsingham has become a pilgrim in her turn as her statue is now entrusted to one household in our congregation at a time, for veneration during a week, until passed on by the chaplain to another household. Book your week on the sign-up sheet after holy Mass this Sunday.


It is one of the few days of obligation. This means that every able Catholic must attend holy Mass on that day, just as if it were a Sunday. Due to shortage of clergy, we will only be able to have holy Mass in Bedford at 8:00am, and in Chesham Bois at 7:00pm. Please take your dispositions to attend one or the other, or some other Mass more convenient for you and your family to travel to. If you or members of your household are genuinely prevented from attending holy Mass on Thursday 5 May, then you are dispensed from the obligation and you incur no sin; but you must take extra time at home to pray on that day, preferably through reading the prayers of the Mass from your missal for the feast of the Ascension.

About one hundred adults and children took part in the successful Spring Barn Dance 2024 organised by George and Heather Tyldesley on 27 April. Participants travelled from far and wide, including Reading, Bedford and Chesham Bois. Traditional English country dances were taught by an expert dance master, and ably performed by all (after some practice). In preparation, some children had helped cut out and colour beautiful flowers used later on to decorate the hall. It was a very enjoyable occasion and a valued opportunity for members of the FSSP Northampton congregations to spend time together in an extra-liturgical setting. We look forward to next year’s edition.

SUCCESSFUL WALSINGHAM PILGRIMAGE attended by 62 pilgrims!

See great pics of the pilgrimage here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/138056205@N08/albums/72177720316449634

Last Sat 20 April, 62 pilgrims from Bedford and Chesham Bois travelled to the national shrine of Our Lady in Walsingham to ask for the protection of the Mother of God upon our congregations, families and friends. The weather was cold but no rain fell. After Holy Mass and a conference on Our Lady and the Incarnation, the pilgrims visited the Slipper Chapel and walked back the Holy Mile praying the Holy Rosary. Picnic followed the village. They later visited the ruins of Walsingham Priory. There, a statue of Our Lady of Walsingham was blessed by the chaplain and all prayed the litany of Loreto in front of the statue positioned right under the remaining arch of the church, before being blessed by the chaplain holding the statue. The pilgrims later visited the beautiful Anglican shrine where they also prayed for the conversion of England, before travelling back home. Our Lady of Walsingham will become a pilgrim in her turn as her statue will be entrusted to one household in our congregation at a time, for veneration during a week, until passed on by the chaplain to another household. Book your week on the sign-up sheet after holy Mass this Sunday.

Well done 23 Catholic single ladies who travelled to Tyburn Convent in London on 13 April to attend a day of vocational discernment led by Fr de Malleray.

SEE PICS HERE: https://www.flickr.com/photos/138056205@N08/albums/72177720316227716/

The day consisted of three conferences, on holy Matrimony, on religious life and on the difference between contemplative and apostolic vocations; plus holy Mass, picnic in Hyde Park and litany of Our Lady prayed at the Tyburn Tree where many Catholic martyrs had died for the faith; and also a testimony by one of the Tyburn nuns. Please pray for a strong revival of religious life across these Isles, and for the young ladies and young men who have recently answered the call, or prepare to do so.

Well done 23 Catholic single ladies who travelled to Tyburn Convent in London on 13 April to

of three conferences, on holy Matrimony, on religious life and on the
difference between contemplative and apostolic vocations; plus holy Mass,
picnic in Hyde Park and litany of Our Lady prayed at the Tyburn Tree where many
Catholic martyrs had died for the faith; and also a testimony by one of
the Tyburn nuns.
Please pray for a strong revival of religious life across these Isles, and for
the young ladies and young men who have recently answered the call, or prepare
to do so.

Pictures above: Maundy Thursday: after Solemn High Mass and procession, about thirty people watched at the altar of repose, some twenty of them staying until midnight.

More pictures to come…



On Maundy Thursday morning, Fr de Malleray and Fr Coelho attended in choir the Chrism Mass at Northampton Cathedral, celebrated by Bishop David Oakley of Northampton, who welcomed permanently in the diocese the FSSP Gregorian Chaplaincy last autumn. The “Roman canon” was used, while kyriale and final Marian antiphon were sung in Latin. Bishop Peter Doyle (emeritus of Northampton) who first established the FSSP Gregorian Chaplaincy in the diocese in 2015, also took part. The pontifical MC was Fr Gerard Byrne. Refreshments followed at Bishop’s House for the many priests present, including a number of religious serving parishes.

In this issue:

Editorial: FSSP Superior meets Pope

Following on his private audience two years earlier, Pope Francis met again with FSSP superiors last 29 February. No particular decision was made but benevolence was shown, a comforting gesture for those attached to the Roman traditions of the Church, comments Fr Armand de Malleray, FSSP.

A Fresh Look at Courtship

Since most marriages nowadays end up in divorce, and whereas young Catholics have fewer opportunities to meet like-minded souls, a young Catholic layman (attending Juventutem events and recently married) finds wisdom in the traditional way of courtship.

Two Young Women Love Sacred Art

Young convert Rachel Moberly paints sacred pictures to evangelise, and one-of-twelve cradle Catholic Francesca Stevens seeks traditional artistic formation abroad after failed attempts in the UK. Their artistic involvement can inspire other Catholics young and old.

Evangelising Britain in the Digital Age

Webmaster Robert Sławik introduces the website dowry.org.uk. This new tool for evangelisation provides easy access to a wealth of articles about faith, spirituality, family matters and education, liturgy, vocations, history, sacred art and literature published in the magazine Dowry since 2008.

The Spiritual Meaning of Making Altar Bread

A nun in formation at the Cistercian monastery of Valley of Our Lady in America reflects on the process of baking hosts for holy Mass, one of the manual tasks performed by her community. She sees in it a spiritual comparison illustrating her life hidden with Christ.

Picasso’s Guernica or, This Is Not A Corrida

Fr Armand de Malleray, FSSP suggests a different title for Pablo Picasso’s famous war painting. Started months before the Basque town was bombed, the picture was subsequently given a title that changed its meaning without substantially altering its composition, though.

Priory Campaign Appeal Update

Rector of Warrington Shrine Fr Matthew Goddard, FSSP explains how the long-awaited completion of the conversion work will provide a versatile hall next to the beautiful Pugin church. Costs rise lead to a final appeal to the generosity of anyone wishing to support this growing traditional apostolate.


Annunciation of Our Lady This feast, transferred from 25 March, is celebrated on Monday 8 April (Low Mass) at 10.00am in Bedford.

Pro Life Chain Sat 27th April, 11am-1pm
SPUC Northampton is holding a Pro-Life Chain on St Peters Way Northampton. This act of silent witness is to remember the millions of lives lost to abortion since the Abortion Act 1967. Please consider joining us at this important event. We will stand together to proclaim the pro-life message. Abortion is a tragedy for babies, mothers, fathers, and society as a whole. We have a moral duty to speak out against the horror of abortion. If you can join us or want more information, then please contact William on 0739 396 5643 (text is fine) or wpcurrie@btinternet.com. Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us.
