Night Haunts #1: Midnight Pilgrims – Tyburn Covent

You might say a prayer for them, and Mother Xavier in particular, who’s been on the edge of the “life is changed, not ended” most wonderful time of life for some weeks now.

It’s good to pray for the grace of final perseverance, for a happy death, for ourselves, for us all. Saint Thomas Aquinas says that this grace of final perseverance is different than the grace with which we live during out lives, and we need that grace of final perseverance in order to persevere in that sanctifying grace. How about doing Mother Xavier a good favor and asking our dearest Lord’s good mom for just that grace:

Hail Mary…

Tyburn friends

The Benedictines have a charism for hospitality. The Tyburns bring this to another level with a long history of hospitality for any “troublesome priest”, with their main monastery being right at the Tyburn tree where so many were martyred.

I always recommend priests stay here on Via Cardinal Bofondi off Via Aurelia on the 46 bus route next to the hospital of San Carlos. Just get the ATAC bus app and you’ll be fine.

There is a picture of their charism out on the street (see above). Mary and and the angels are looking down and away from Jesus her Son in humility. But Mary is pointing to Jesus. It’s all about Jesus.
