Dominican Pilgrimage to Walsingham

Dominican Pilgrimage to Walsingham

On Sunday 20 May, Dominican friars and sisters, lay Dominicans and friends of the Order made a pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. Here are photos from that wonderful day of prayer and fraternity; click on them to enlarge:

Holy Ghost Chapel

“The Rosary is fundamentally nothing more than a specially arranged synthesis of Marian Devotions with a truly Trinitarian and Christological orientation. That is what makes it essential and irreplaceable as a genuine devotion to Mary” – Edward Schillebeeckx, O.P.

Down the Holy Mile

Salve Regina

“O alone of all women, Mother and Virgin, Mother most happy, Virgin most pure, now we sinful as we are, come to see thee who are all pure, we salute thee, we honour thee as how we may with our humble offerings; may thy Son grant us, that imitating thy most holy manners, we also, by the grace of the Holy Ghost may deserve spiritually to conceive the Lord Jesus in our inmost soul, and once conceived never to lose him. Amen” – Walsingham pilgrims’ prayer, believed to have been composed by Erasmus, c.1511
