As an agnostic with sometimes pagan leanings, this weekend was at times an uncomfortable and challenging experience.

An anointing with oil.

An invitation (unaccepted) to a laying-on of hands and confession.

A candlelit procession in honour of Our Lady of Walsingham

This is a special place, whatever your personal faith

Ave Maria.
