Our Lady of Walsingham

A blessed feast of Our Lady to all, especially to our sister parish in Houston!

O God, who through the mystery of the Word made flesh didst in thy mercy sanctify the house of the blessed Virgin Mary, and wondrously place it in the bosom of thy Church: Grant that being made separate from the tabernacles of sinners, we may become worthy to dwell in thy holy house; through the same Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Update: there's a great article about the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham which I've posted in my "Reading Room." Go here.
