Our Lady of Walsingham

Today is the feast of Our Lady of Walsingham, the titular feast of the Ordinariate in England and Wales and the patroness of England -- and by extension of the English-speaking people.  Our Lady of Walsingham is also the titular patroness  of the cathedral of the American Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter.

This page is a comprehensive website which will give you an entrance to as much or more history of the Walsingham  apparition and shrine as any on the web.

A collect for Our Lady of Walsingham:

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 indwellers 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.
