Weekend 482.3 (3rd Sunday of Lent)

Mass at St. Margaret’s and then a mini-pilgrimage to the Tyburn Convent for Adoration. The Tyburn Nuns are Benedictine Adorers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of Montmartre. The Tyburn Convent is located at the famous site of the martyrdom of more than 100 Catholic Reformation Martyrs.

The monument near the entrance of the Tyburn Chapel reads:

TO THE GLORY OF GOD

AND IN HONOUR OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

THIS STONE WAS BLESSED AND LAID BY

CARDINAL WILLIAM GODFREY ARCHBISHOP OF WESTMINISTER

ON THE 10TH DECEMBER 1961

IN MEMORY OF THE GLORIOUS MARTYRS

WHO LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES

IN DEFENCE OF THE CATHOLIC FAITH

HERE ON TYBURN HILL

1535 – 1681

The connection to the Benedictines and Montmartre is personally significant for me. I visited the latter with a good friend whilst in Paris. The photos from that trip weren’t great but I’ll find one for the post.

I went to St. Paul’s Cathedral after leaving Tyburn Convent via the Circle line.
