On Honeymoon


Blogging activity will be minimal for the next week or two because...

I'm on honeymoon with my wonderful wife!

Isn't the heart of England just beautiful?

With views like this in England, who needs Scotland anyway?

At least, that's what the Queen probably really thinks.

For reasons of privacy no pictures of the wedding will be on my blog but here is a picture of the cake.



 Obviously, if Hello! magazine get in touch then my position on this matter may change...

God bless readers. Thank you to all who attended our wedding, to all who have shown us such generosity and kindness and to all who pray for us. Keep us in your prayers.

Married couples need prayers, like priests need prayers, so that we too may bear witness to
Christ, love His will and abide in His love.

I didn't know Elgar was a Catholic.

Apparently, he is buried in a little Church called St Wulstan's just down the road...

I recognise that picture. It is just a few miles from the Benedictine Abbey at Belmont, Herefordshire.
May you both have a long and happy life.

Congratulations. Will keep you and your wife in my prayers. What's your wife's name? Can we see just one photograph of you both on your wedding day??

Forget my request for a photo - I missed that you said you wanted privacy. God bless.

Yes, Elgar was a Catholic. He also had a sister who became a nun.

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Bones!

I guess when Fr. Blake wrote recently “ two of my favourite people had a splendid wedding” he was talking about you.

May God bless you both abundantly!

Very good wishes to you both and my prayers.
Elgar was born in a lovely little house in the Malverns which you might see also.
His Dream of Gerontius is a wonderfl meditation about Purgatory.

God bless you both. Ad multos laetosque annos!

Elgar also wrote a very fine setting of the "Ave verum corpus", which we occasionally sing in our choir (when the director gets tired of the Mozart!). Here it is:
