The annual Rosary Crusade of Reparation will take place on Saturday 16th October. There will be a procession starting at Westminster Cathedral at 1.45pm and ending with pontifical solemn benediction at Brompton Oratory. On this occasion, it will be lead by Rt Rev Dom Cuthbert Brogan, the Abbot of Farnborough.
In a pastoral letter following the visit of the Holy Father, Archbishop Vincent Nichols called on Catholics to be more visible in society and to take a more prominent role in public affairs. He suggested, for example, that Catholics should join local councils and be more active in politics. He also suggested that we should not shrink from making the sign of the cross in public.
Here is a perfect opportunity for Catholics, at least those living in the London area, not only to make the sign of the cross, but to recite the whole of the rosary in a very public way. I am not sure whether Archbishop Nichols is planning on taking part in the rosary crusade himself, but I would urge all those who can to get to Westminster Cathedral on Saturday 16th October.
