Join us this afternoon for the National Pilgrimage to pray for the Beatification of Venerable Margaret Sinclair. We begin at 2pm with a Holy Hour and confessions, with Mass celebrated by His Grace the Archbishop at 4.30pm.

“The royal banners forward go,
The cross shines forth in mystic glow;
Where He in flesh, our flesh who made,
Our sentence bore, our ransom paid.”

Today, the feast of the Holy Cross, the relic of the True Cross stands veiled on the throne above the altar for veneration.

Annual Margaret Sinclair Pilgrimage

The National Pilgrimage to pray for the Beatification of the Venerable Margaret Sinclair takes place on Sunday, 17th September. There will be a Holy Hour at 2pm, followed by a reflection and novena prayers, a break for refreshments and Holy Mass at 4.30pm. All are welcome to come and support her cause and ask for the intercession of Scotland’s own Little Flower.

“The salvation of the whole world began with the ‘Hail Mary’.” (St Louis de Montfort)

With thanks to a kind friend from overseas, who sent flowers for Our Lady’s altar in church in time for the feast of her Nativity today.

“In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.” (Mother Teresa)

Like Mother Teresa, our own Venerable Margaret Sinclair was inspired by the Little Flower’s example to do ordinary things with extraordinary love.

“Well, my brothers, when shall we begin to do good?” (St Philip Neri)

It was wonderful to meet the parishioners of St Patrick’s this morning! Please pray for us as we begin our work.
