When the suggestion was made that people might be interested in providing new lectionaries for the groups in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, the response was overwhelming. Fifty sets of the lectionary were able to be shipped, and many of them have been distributed and are in use.
Msgr Andrew Burnham took on the complicated task of matching donors and recipients, and he has spent many hours acknowledging the gifts. I received a brief email from him today in which he says, “I spent a morning on this last week and shall try to set aside a similar time soon for the remaining ones. I’m letting you know in case anyone says that they haven’t heard…. The generosity is overwhelming and I am much encouraged by the response of the English clergy, who all seem to be very pleased indeed to be pointed in the direction of the RSV.”
Thank you to all who donated. To those who have received, please know that these gifts come with our love and support. If recent reports come to fruition, we may need to be sending more copies!
We have plenty of copies available, and if you wish to order a set for yourself or your parish, go to AtonementOnline. You'll find the details at the upper right of the page.
