A NEW FEAST
As you probably know, holy days in the Catholic Church fall into three categories. The most important ones are labeled SOLEMNITIES,
days such as those when we celebrate Our Lord's Ascension, or the
Assumption of Our Lady, or
Each year in July - for as long as I can remember - I have felt somewhat outraged that St.Mary Magdalen, whom we observe on July 22nd, has only been kept as a Memoria - albeit a mandatory one. She seems to me to be of far greater significance than many of those to whom the Church has accorded Feast Days. She was, after all, the first recorded person to whom Our Lord appeared after his Resurrection - a singular honour - beside which her example of burning love for Jesus is so edifying. So I was delighted when on receiving the Bishop's periodic letter a few days ago to see that St.Mary Magdalen has been upgraded to a Feast. Not before time! A proper Preface has been written for the Mass (the first part of the Eucharistic Prayer), but has not yet been translated into English. So this coming Friday will be rather special : the first celebration of the FEAST of St.Mary Magdalen. Why not come along to Mass at 11.0am or 5.0pm (Convent). And to celebrate further, why not come into the Presbytery for a pre-lunch drink after the 11.0am Mass?
Perhaps you are more likely to have shared my outrage over another matters - the fact that the Head of the Royal College of Midwives, Cathy Warwick, is Chairman of Britain's largest commercial abortion company, and has signed up the Royal College of Midwives to support a law allowing more abortions! This seems extraordinary, and truly is outrageous. The Society for the Protection of the Unborn Child, SPUC, is objecting to this, and we are asked to send in cards expressing our support of their objection. If you would like to do so, you will find a supply of these cards at the back of church.
