This day brings together three themes that have figured in the mind recently. The first, the Most Holy Sacrament, and the honour due to it. The second, Our Most Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, as he begins his visit to Britain. The third, the third anniversary of the coming into force of Summorum Pontificum. For all his many gifts, especially those wrought through Our Holy Father the Pope, thanks be to God!
