From the feast of the Holy Rosary until Sunday, 10th October over 30 pilgrims took part in the Rosary Blast in Walsingham. Many hundreds joined us in spirit from all over the world. We recited ten full 15 decade Rosaries during the Blast at the Slipper Chapel and its grounds, along the Holy Mile, in the Abbey and in Walsingham village. Each decade was preceded by a meditation by Bishop Williamson or Fr Morgan. The Bishop spoke much of the severe situation of Church and world and how powerful the Rosary is to combat all the current evils.
Mass was said every day and other sacraments were also adminstered.
Our Lady smiled on us with unseasonably clement weather for the whole time.
One generous pilgrim said afterwards, “I feel like I’ve had the biggest spiritual body and soul workout ever” and another “It was a feast for the soul.” All agreed that it was a grace-filled four days and we hope that Our Lady was pleased with our efforts with Her Rosary.
We hope these pictures below give an impression of the Blast along with one of the Rosary meditations from Bishop Williamson. We hope to publish all the Rosary meditations soon.
