Tyburn Tree... Catholic martyrs in England during the Reformation...


This is a place of history that I hope to visit if (God willing) I can go to see Catholic England on pilgrimage sometime in the next few years. A history that has sadly been so white-washed.

h/t to Maryella, my pilgrim pal in Rome & Assisi

I'd love to join you for a cuppa : )

I would love to see all of the British Isles. I have a friend in Wales who'd love for me to visit, too. How fun that would be!

There are so many places I would like to visit including England. To actually go to a site where Our Lady appeared would be so special.

This is such a young country that we dont have the medieval side of history or places that are in Europe.

For instance if I went to the Tower of London I would not think of Anne Boelyn. My thoughts would be on St. Thomas More.

Ah, sigh...oneday....

Peace & JOY to you:)
