WALSINGHAM (United Kingdom)

The Holy House of the Annunciation

clipboard52.jpgThe Sanctuary began in 1061 when Our Lady requested the building of a house like the home of the Holy Family of Nazareth. This is why the Sanctuary is known as the “England’s Nazareth”.

At the time of the Reformation in 16th century the Sanctuary was destroyed and the statue burned. Worship began again in 1897.

Today, Walsingham has a Catholic and Anglican Shrine. Ecumenical encounters frequently take place there.clipboard50.jpg

The statue of Our Lady of Walsingham was brought to Wembley Stadium in London when Pope John-Paul II visited Great Britain from 28th May to 2nd June 1982.

The Feast of Our Lady of Walsingham is kept on 24th September.

O my Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, I offer myself entirely to Thy grace and to Thy overwhelming mercy today and forever, but mostly at the hour of my death do I dedicate myself to thee. To thee do I dedicate my body and soul, all my happiness and hope, all my sorrows and sufferings! I offer my life and the end of my life to Thy holy hands so that through Thy merits all my deeds and acts go according to Thy holy will and according to the will of Thy sweetest Son! Amen.
