Today, Br Benedict Manning Cong. Orat., is to be ordained to the Diaconate in the Oxford Oratory. We pray for him, for many graces both for him and for the Oxford Oratory. It was in their Church, more than six years ago now, that we were received into the full communion of the Catholic Church, and we will always be grateful to the Oxford brethren for the role they have played in our lives, both individually and together.

May God bless them all, and may Our Lady watch over us in everything this day.
