A Mournful Anniversary

Yesterday afternoon was busy - the wedding of the great-great-grand nephew of Cardinal Vaughan, followed by the lovely baptism of the Headmaster's new baby. But after these life-giving events, the next was very different; an ecumenical service to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the passing of the Abortion legislation in this country. It was a moving and prayerful event, led by the Cardinal, marking a sad milestone. The Paschal candle burns in the Holy Souls chapel this weekend, as we pray for the unborn dead, and for our society that has lost the value of the sanctity of life.

I have was very taken by the hymn about the unborn and have quoted it in full on my blog.
