St Therese visit to St Chad's Cathedral

Today we have just got back from a retreat from Douai Abbey near Reading, which was an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling grace-filled weekend led by Rev Fr Armand de Mallary FSSP. If that wasn't enough, we also had the opportunity to venerate St Thérese of Lisieux's relics, which are being taken around England this month. This weekend they have come to the Cathedral of St Chad's in Birmingham's Jewellery quarter.

We went this evening in time for a Mass for Religious with Rt Rev Bishop William Kenney CP as celebrant. I was impressed by his authoritive homily, and wouldn't be at all surprised if he were made Archbishop of Birmingham in due course. It was also nice to hear the Cathedral choir sing Palestrina's Sicut Cervus during the offertory and the Agnus Dei from his Missa Iste Confessor.
