Blackfen's Quarante'Ore Under Way...

I did manage to drag myself away from the cats...


I thought I better put some pictures up from the start of the Quarant'Ore at Blackfen, before I lost all credibility as a Catholic Blogger.




It was really awesome. The Mass (a votive one of the Blessed Sacrament) was beautiful - and we had more candlesticks this year, the extras on loan from the Parish Priest of Chislehurst. Fortunately I had remembered to collect them. His Hermeneuticalness informed us, during the sermon, that the Jansenists used to insist, in their attempts to avoid ostentation, that there should be no more than 40 candles. Fr. Tim took great delight in pointing out that we had more than 40...



I didn't want to leave the cats alone all night for their first night, so, after a brief pause in the Parish Club for a coca cola and a chat, I stayed only for an hour, and then went home...

May the Heart of Jesus, present in the Most Blessed Sacrament, be praised, loved and adored at every moment, even until the end of time!
Amen.
Beautiful!
