291 and still counting!

A massive 'thank you' to all those who have responded to my request for a rosary (or Memorare) to be said for the intercession of Our Lady of the Taper at Cardigan, for the return of the Tridentine Latin Mass to this part of West Wales.

291 rosaries or equivalent have been pledged and these will be laid at the feet of Our Blessed Mother at Cardigan on Sunday 4th December at 3pm - the last Mass to be celebrated here at the National Shrine of Wales - stunning isn't it?

Surely the National Shrine should
have a regular Latin Mass?
Furthermore - the rosaries offered will form a spiritual bouquet that will be presented to the Bishop of Menevia, Bishop Thomas Burns for both his personal intentions and for the return of the Mass.

Brick by brick, rosary by rosary, the Mass will return - but, a few more rosaries would be much appreciated - please email 1 or whatever number you wish to donate (1 is good) to: or, leave a note in my comment box.

We, the members of The Confraternity of the Holy Cross, will have a Mass said for the intentions of all donors - thank you!


  1. Richard,
    You are most welcome, and God bless you in your endeavours for the restoration of the TLM!


  2. Count me in for at least one Rosary!

  3. Hello Richard,

    I will be offering a Rosary for your intention on Saturday...

    Our Lady is bound to bring the old Mass back to her Shrine, especially when so many of her children desire this grace so much.

    God bless


  4. Joyce and Dylan - Bless you both, prayers and a Mass will be offered on your behalf.

  5. Richard - I'll say a Rosary for you tomorrow. More grace to your elbow!

  6. Will say a rosary for your intention, also in memory of my father who died in 2003 aged 94. He always lamented the loss of the Latin Mass. He would have been happy to see promising signs that it will at least be partially restored for those who wish it. I'm torn between old and new, I do like the new translation of the Mass, the words are very familiar. Elizabeth, BC Canada
