In this issue:

Editorial: The Work of our Redemption

Fr de Malleray, FSSP addresses concerns about the future of the traditional Latin Mass. The prospects are bleak, but divine Providence will support us if we put our hearts into this liturgy as a means of sanctification for us and others.

Adolescents Make Rosary Beads

Romeo and Lucianna Robinson, a disabled young man and his sister, found that their usual beads did not last very long. They decided to make their own. Now they sell them as an apostolate.

God Tangled: Christ’s Crowning with Thorns

As a Lenten meditation, Fr Armand de Malleray, FSSP explains how the thorns of the crown of Our Lord prophetically ‘stem from’ the timber of the cross as prefigured in various episodes in the Old Testament.

Bl. Noël Pinot, a Shepherd for Times of Trial

Frs Franck Labbé and A. de Malleray tell the story of the exemplary pastor who, during the French Revolution, walked up to the guillotine wearing his priestly vestments and praying the very first words of Holy Mass, ‘Introibo ad altare Dei’.

Vendée War Heroes Inspire Young Catholics

Young Catholics in France learn about the courage of their forefathers, mostly country people and a few local gentry who stood up for their faith against formidable odds, whose bravery earned them the admiration even of Napoleon.

Priory Campaign Reopened

Times call for strong traditional Catholic centres, such as St Mary’s Warrington. Invest with us in a fully-fledged traditional Catholic hub with versatile conference hall sitting 218 guests.

First House in Ireland for our Fraternity

By Fr Patrick O’Donohue, FSSP describes the encouraging growth of our Irish apostolate. He trusts in the intercessions of saints and the assistance of the faithful to consolidate our first base on the Isle of Saints.

Forthcoming Events

Supporters of the traditional Latin Mass will be eager to book early for these various events, including children’s camps, youth summer weekend, pilgrimages, confirmations, and retreat for all.

Support our Apostolate    

Unlike long-established religious orders and dioceses endowed with valuable assets providing regular income, the FSSP in this country relies essentially on the generosity of its benefactors. Thank you for your support to help us do more for God and souls.

Easter duty: to be absolved from any grave sins in confession individually by a priest and receive Holy Communion at least every 12 months, preferably around Easter.

Please don’t wait until Easter for Confession, lest there be not enough time to hear every penitent. Please note that the priests will be very busy with the liturgies during the Triduum, so that there will not be a lot of time for Confessions then.

Passiontide from Sat 25th evening until Easter Vigil: veil images and crucifixes in churches. Thank you to all who can give extra time to prepare the liturgies this Passiontide (singers, servers, cameramen), clean the church, arrange flowers and cook for clergy.

Pray for Fr Ian Verrier, FSSP unwell for a few months and presently recuperating in Reading. We hope to have him back with us by Holy Week.

Converts’ class Saturdays 5pm. Catholics willing to improve their faith are welcome as well. Contact Fr Quirke: frquirke@outlook.com.

Shrine expenses grow quicker than income. This is not surprising since our parishioners are affected by the economic difficulties. However, if you are in a position to contribute personally or to alert benefactors on our needs, even though they don’t live in Warrington, please share our bank account details below with them.

Thank you for helping us through the Offertory collection and standing orders. Should any parishioner be in serious financial difficulty, let them contact the Shrine clergy confidentially.
