Pray for the Conversion of England

As English Seminarians it is our solemn duty and great privilege to pray for the conversion of England. In our Seminary hangs a painting commissioned by our founder of Our Blessed Lady seated on a throne with a plinth bearing the statement, 'England is my Dowry'. So we pray daily for the return of the English peoples to the one true flock, for the title of 'Dowry of Mary' to be returned to our beloved nation and for the Monarch to be 'Defender of THE Faith' once more.

Therefore we were very happy to see this post on Fr Tim's blog and are also happy to support the work of Keys of Peter whose project this is.

Please join us in this prayer.

God Bless you all,

The Seminarians

[Best wishes for all of you this academic year. BTW, my Saturday rosary is always dedicated to all seminarians, everywhere - you fellows in particular.]

Dear Seminarians,

Many of us here on the other side of The Pond are praying for the conversion of England as well! I feel that, second only to the Vatican, a Catholic England could be Europe's greatest hope for renewal and survival. What a wonderful and powerful sign it would be!

God bless you, and God bless England!

Thanks Karen.

Incidentally, the painting was given by a high ranking prelate, but was seen as a snub, due to it's poor artistic quality. It was kept on public display of long enough that feelings wouldn't be hurt, then move to a more private place.
