Well, that's the end of the Quarant'Ore at Blackfen for another year. It's very strange, but, as the Blessed Sacrament is reposed in the Tabernacle after being exposed for the forty hours, there is a terrible sense of loss. I'm not the only person to have noticed it - and yet, Our Lord hasn't gone anywhere. He still awaits us in the Tabernacle of every church, and at every Mass.
I said it in my last post, and I'll say it again - it really is a tremendous privilege to be able to assist at the Forty Hours, even if only for a short time.
You can read Fr. Tim's account of it, and see a few more photos taken during the Forty Hours over on Flickr.
