~ Sister Lucia of Fatima
Join Juventutem London on Wednesday 15 February as we pray the Rosary for the conversion of Europe at Tyburn, a site where at least one hundred and five martyrs gave their lives in witness to the truths of the Holy Catholic Church.
We will meet at 6.30pm in The Relic Chapel at the Tyburn Convent, 8-9 Hyde Park Place, London W2 2LJ
Father Marcus Holden will preach beforehand and lead the Rosary. During the fifth mystery of the Rosary we will walk to the site of the Tyburn Tree and conclude the Rosary there with a blessing from Father Holden.
All our welcome to come and join us in the Rosary.
Afterwards there will be a social at The Carpenters Arms pub for those aged 18-35, with an exception for priests and religious. The Carpenters Arms itself has a wonderful connection to the martyrs:
"The gallows itself subsequently consisted of two uprights and a cross-beam, erected on the morning of execution across the Edgware Road, opposite the house at the corner of Upper Bryanston Street and the Edgware Road, wherein the gallows was deposited after being used; this house had curious iron balconies to the windows of the first and second floors, where the sheriffs sat to witness the executions. After the place of execution was changed to Newgate, in 1783, the gallows was bought by a carpenter, and made into stands for beer-butts in the cellars of the 'Carpenters' Arms' public-house, hard by."reference: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=45231
Join us as we unite our prayers with Our Lady and the English Martyrs for the conversion of Europe.
"I pray God that my blood may increase the Catholic faith in England."
~ Blessed George Haydock, executed at Tyburn, 12 February 1584.
