Comments: Little Gidding Pilgrimage

Ah! Little Gidding brings back a nostalgia for the reformed and catholic heritage of the Church of England. Let's hope it never becomes as troubled by conservative division as the Anglican Shrine of Our Blessed Lady at Walsingham - where a woman may not preside at the Eucharist, even though the Shrine was erected for devotion to the Woman who gave Christ His human nature in the Godhead.

Ron: The group of parishes of which Little Gidding forms part currently has a woman as its incumbent, and women have been incumbents there for almost all of the last dozen or so years.

Thank you, Simon, for your re-assurance that the Anglo-Catholic scene has some of us, in England, who have moved on from a defective understanding of what it means to be fully, and comprehensively, human.

Jesus mercy; Mary pray.
