Papal Mass in Westminster and Meeting with Young People
This morning the Pope joined hundreds of people in a packed Westminster Cathedral for a magnificient Mass with an incredible entrance hymn (introit) from James MacMillan. The Catholic Church certainly does solemn liturgy. His sermon was particularly moving not just because of his powerful words on Child Abuse but because he clearly spoke heart to heart!
At end of Mass (see picture above) he then went out into the piazza and met with the young people of England and Wales were he was enthusiastically welcomed by them. He then blessed a special candle stand for use by young.
It was once again a beautiful sunny day filled with prayer music and joy, and the wise words of the Holy Father.
