Gosh...They kept that one quiet, didn't they? I hope the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton 'responds' soon to the question, 'Would you like the miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadaloupe to visit your Diocese for the devotion, reverence and piety of the Faithful?' soon! All the other Dioceses, yes, even Leeds, are awaiting 'confirmation'. Arundel and Brighton appears to be the only Diocese who haven't got back to the letter/phone message/email yet. Sigh. You know, its only the miraculous Image of Our Lady that even independent scientists cannot explain, that near single-handedly converted Mexico and nearly all of Latin America to the Holy Faith. We'll put it on the backburner for now, shall we? Put that at the bottom of the 'to do' tray! Good grief!

Thanks for the details - I had not read about the tour of this image but on googling around find that it has been in Britain since March. I am tempted to ask whether perhaps the invitation to our Bishop got lost in the post? It is more likely that knowing that both Westminster and Southwark cathedrals are both hosting the image he probably realises that most of us down here can get to London easily so that could be why he has not replied. Just a thought.

It is not the original image of course, but a copy but it is good to know that it is being received in other dioceses including the Cathedrals of Westminster and Southwark. Southwark's first date coincides with the Rosary Crusade this year which I understand is on the 9th October so that is good timing!

A Bishop putting up two fingers at Our Lady? Surely not!

Oh, come on. I thought everyone knew that +Conry doesn't have time for all that old-fashioned nonsense - like confession and salvation and wearing his priest's collar.
No, he'll be saving his strength for the liturgical dancing in Hyde Park.

Good information Lawrence. You mention our Lady visiting Tapyr Menevia. This is, in fact, the National Shrine of Wales, Our Lady of the Taper in Cardigan (Menevia Diocese)
There are regular Latin Masses at this church and the shrine has equal status to Walsingham as being the "national" shrine.
It would be helpful if bloggers could carry a link to this shrine.
