Weekend 492.1

I’m waiting for the café next door to open…need coffee.

Yesterday I went to Mass at Our Lady of Fatima in Harlow. The church was featured in 100 Churches 100 Years published / commissioned by the Twentieth Century Society. The apron of the church is a perfect square and surrounded by “great expanses” of stained glass by Benedictine monk and artist Charles Norris (OSB).

“Its [the church] plan is a clear and straightforward expression of liturgical reform principles that sought to put the Mass center-stage, enveloped by the congregation.”

The Miracle of the Sun, also known as the Miracle of Fátima, occurred in 1917 . On my way back to the train station I stopped at the 1914-1918 War Memorial. It seemed appropriate since Our Lady promised that God would grant peace to the entire world if Her requests for prayer, reparation and consecration were heard and obeyed.

I took photos and will post them on Flickr.
