Best wishes ...

... for White Rose Day. At Mass I spared a memento for our late Sovereign Lord King James III and VIII, whose Birthday of course it is. And also for the heroic souls who died in their loyal attempts to assert his Right. And this I can tell, that all things shall be well, when the King shall have his Own again.

I was a little naughty this morning and said Lauds of Christ the King, with commemoration of the day.

Before going to the florist to collect a button-hole, of course.

Perhaps some good bishop (are there any?) could impose an oratio imperata pro re gravi for our gloriously reigning Sovereign Lady H.M. Queen Elizabeth II.

Perhaps someone could organise a public subscription to build (or acquire) a church (perhaps served by a community of monks or canons - I am thinking of the example of Farnborough Abbey) in which Mass and the offices could be celebrated according to venerable rites, with requiems for the departed members of the Royal House of Stuart, and regular intercessions for their living descendants.

As some of them were Anglicans, it is only right that this ecclesial entity should have Anglican members or an Anglican chaplain. Unfortunately, the author of this blog is not yet available, as we at St Thomas' need him.

For obvious reasons, I suggest that it should be built in Liechtenstein.

One can always dream ....

AndewWS, perhaps one of the side chapels at the (Anglican) Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham could be so dedicated, with shared duties from the clergy, staff and/or pilgrims, of both the Anglican Shrine and the Slipper Shrine (R.C.) a mile down the road. There is already a separate Chapel of the Guild of All Souls at OLW; if medieval politics wouldn't stand in the way, perhaps a Chapel with a daily shared Mass with the already-extant Society of King Charles, Saint and Martyr would be appropriate.

[The 'Society of King Charles II, Profligate and Drunkard' already meets at the pub across the street in Little Walsingham-- there's no Communion wine, but the ale is excellent...]
