Papal Visit Team To Visit Blackfen...

...ok, ok... it's the Southwark Papal Visit Team bloggers, James Blythe and Daniella Adams, who will be visiting Our Lady of the Rosary, Blackfen this Sunday.

It is, of course, the Feast of the Assumption, and so our 10:30am Mass will be a Missa Cantata - our August Masses are usually Low Masses so that the choir and organist can have a well-earned break.

James and Daniella are doing exactly what is needed for the Holy Father's visit: blogging, Facebooking and (they will be) live-tweeting, just to help keep us all abreast of what's happening.

I'm getting more and more excited.

Yes, I know there have been problems. Time to move on. Don't mention the CD...

But the visit's getting closer! The Holy Father will be visiting the UK! (Well, ok, a couple of bits of Scotland and England... sorry to Northern Ireland and Wales, but that's the way the cookie crumbles and gets stomped on and totally obliterated... no hard feelings, eh?)

If you want to start off the countdown in style, come over to Blackfen for 10:30am Mass this Sunday!

Directions via the Parish Website.

I bet the blog post title had you going for a minute, didn't it?

You put me in mind of a song in 'Yeomen of the Guard', Mac : 'Temptation, Oh Temptation' !

However, my Father was apparently taught a song as a boy which went 'Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin', which puts me in quandary . . . ;-)

Ahhh, but you would be honouring Our Lady on the Feast of the Assumption... which cannot be a sin!

Oh how I wish I could be there, apart from in spirit.

Have a wonderful Mass
