World Blogging exclusive

Westminster Mass packed with every sort of person, including lots of small people in buggies, (who were very quiet all things considered.)

Beautiful music sung by the Cathedral Choir including a motet by Elgar and the Byrd Ave Verum, nice to get some English music in around a Palestrina Mass setting.

An awesome occasion.

Met Fr Ray wow. Very kindly he is too as he is on his blog.

Mark of Rise and Pray with a Scottish posse.

Lots of other lovely people in the pub afterwards.

Other people will have more and photos. You know, the usual suspects.

glad you all had a great time. Mac posted a nice pic of you and Fr. Ray on her blog.

Thanks, GOTO.

My cover is blown well and truly by she who will not be photographed.

Well what a day for it.

I got to get Fr Ray a cappucino too!

Well, if I ever do get to Brighton, I'll know to bring him a carton of Marlboroughs!

What were you eating? An ice cream soda? :-D

BTW, Mac did get "captured" last year on a few blogs when they met down at Father Ray's for a blogger meeting around this time last year.

You must be mistaken, GOTO, surely ....Marlboroughs???

I had a latte and Mac a hot chocolate.

Ah yes... I forgot that photo,mmm.

A very wide selection of photos of Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos's visit are now on the usual web site at

A colleague and I were the LMS's official photographers and thus had access to places that the general pubic do not - hence some very different views of the ceremonies.

they'd be "Marlboroughs" if the Marlboro man could spell. But then Pall Mall couldn't spall either.

Vernon. Thank you for the link to the photos.

GOTO. Not an expert on cigarettes thingies, sorry.
