This year I celebrate All Saints in Dursley at the Parish of Saint Dominic.
Mass has been said and the saints have been honoured. One of the most wonderful and ancient parts of Catholicism is the veneration of relics. From the earliest times we have said Mass on tombs and relics of the Church Triumphant. They stop our obsession with the here and now and open us up to aeternity.
So a privilege to say Mass in the presence of so many of them.
