“My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.”

Rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary - Sunday 29th March 2020
The first dedication of England was made by King Richard II in 1381, as England faced the turmoil of the Peasants’ Revolt, an uprising that took place in response to high taxes. The Rededication which takes place this Sunday March 29, 2020, is a personal dedication of the people of England following in the footsteps of the king. In thanksgiving for the end of the Revolt Richard returned and gave the country as a gift - a dowry - to Our Lady for her continued protection and guidance. Until the Reformation, Kings of England went on Pilgrimage to Walsingham to renew this dedication but the commitment was abandoned by Henry VIII.
Today, we, the Catholics of England follow in that tradition. As we face personal, national, and worldwide challenges today, we turn to Mary once again and offer our faith as she leads us to her Son. It is noteworthy that at this time of world crisis caused by the Coronavirus several countries including France and Spain, have rededicated their countries to Mary on the Feast of the Annunciation, seeking her intercession for the world at this critical moment, recognising that her mission in the Church since the first Pentecost is to lead us to Christ. Mary, Mother of the Church. Pray for us.

… go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations. Baptise them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you. And know that I am with you always, until the end of time’. (Mt. 28:18-20)
As Christians, as the Church, we are called to know Jesus Christ present with us, and to proclaim and share the faith we have received. Bishop Mark has offered us an opportunity to take part in this Great Commission through The Catechetical Institute at Franciscan University.
