Preston Benediction - Remarkable.



Rarely post videos because I find it a nuisance, but I was struck by this one. Sent from GWB, linguistic philosopher and all round sportsman.

God bless,

Amazing! Thank you for posting the video - the monks should do more of that sort of thing. (Also thanks for visiting my blog LSP).

That is edgy. In the public square we've have gay couples kissing, nude biking, provocative artwork, banned-book reading... but never anything this brave.

These men are to be congratulated for finally bringing something controversial to the public eye.

It is brave - especially in England.

100 or so years ago that action would have caused riots and 300 years ago imprisonment and probably death. Just showing a Rosary in public was against the law...

Today? The scorn of Dawkins... still, look at the people kneeling before the Sacrament. Quite a witness and in downtown Preston, of all places.

I was very moved.

Alright there, KL.

I was more than taken aback by that video -- well done those Friars!
