I write to share with you my thoughts following the great Day in honour of Our Lady of Fatima in Westminster Cathedral on Saturday February 18th 2017. I write this on the Feast of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta and I wish you a Happy and Blessed Feast. May the little Shepherds lead us all more deeply into living the Message of Our Lady of Fatima in our daily lives.

A great thank you is given to the World Apostolate of Fatima Team who have initiated the great Pilgrim Tour of Our Lady of Fatima through the great Cathedrals, Shrines and Churches of our lands of England and Wales. Westminster Cathedral was totally full - fuller than I have ever seen it - a very great honour for Our Blessed Lady and how the Sacred Heart of Jesus must have been bursting with love and mercy to behold such honour for the Blessed Virgin Mary his beloved Mother!

I thank Almighty God for the great grace of the Act of Consecration to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary which our Cardinal led us in honour of the Centenary celebrations for Our Lady of Fatima.

We will only know in Heaven how timely this solemn Act of Consecration was for the Church and for England, Mary's Dowry and for Wales.

It was a treasured moment within the Holy Mass of grace, mercy and hope for the Church and for the World.

It was a true honouring of Our Lady's role as our Blessed Mother, into whose Immaculate Heart, Jesus, Our Lord and Saviour consecrated/entrusted us all to, in His dying breath. For The  Blessed Mother is the Co Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate and we so need her powerful Intercession before God for these times.

Under God and our Holy Father, the Pope the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, together with the other Bishops of England and Wales hold the full spiritual authority, the spiritual might, health, strength, and protection for England, Mary's Dowry and for Wales.

The Bishops, successors of the Apostles have the spiritual authority before God the Almighty Father, to unleash torrents of grace, mercy and intervention through the powerful intercession of the Blessed Mother for the good of the Church and for the good of these Nations. For God has entrusted the peace of the world into the hands of the Blessed Virgin Mary. 

The Act of Consecration is the start of the Tsunami of Grace for the Centenary Year which Our Lady of Fatima will bring to the Church in England and Wales, as the Bishops one by one, carry out this solemn Act of Consecration, each in their own Dioceses & Cathedrals. All Bishops, priests and faithful meanwhile need to live and witness daily to the message and requests of Our Lady of Fatima.

Then on a date, known only to the Lord and his Holy Mother, my prayer is that all the English Bishops & Welsh Bishops will gather firstly in the Priory Grounds in Walsingham and then in Our Lady of the Taper Shrine in Cardigan - the National Marian Shrines of England and Wales, to make together in full collegiality , the much longed for and much needed Solemn Act of Consecration of England and Wales to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

This is my PRAYER and I hope it is yours too ….

I hope and pray that you were all greatly encouraged and strengthened by the grace of Saturday's Solemn Act of Consecration of England & Wales to the Immaculate Hart of Mary.

I attach a link to the beautiful photos of the day.
