Walsingham: Pilgrims and Pilgrimage


A new edition of Fr Michael Rear’s definitive book, originally published to celebrate the 950th anniversary of the foundation of the Shrine of Our Lady in Walsingham. Michael Rear is uniquely qualified to write this book. His experience of many years of ministry in Walsingham, together with his meticulous research, fluent style of writing and choice of illustrations in the 32 pages of colour and 16 pages of black and white illustrations have combined to produce what will certainly become the standard work on pilgrims and pilgrimage to the Holy Land of Walsingham. This comprehensive work begins with the pre-Christian era and is brought through triumph and tragedy right up to the present day. In an exciting new development the book chronicles the recent re-discovery of the mediaeval image of Our Lady crowned by King Henry III and dating to 1220-1230.

News from the Oratory
Our Lady of Penrhys

The shrine of Our Lady, situated in the heart of the Rhondda Valley, dates back to Medieval times. Originally, Penrhys was part of the estate that belonged to the Cistercians of Llantarnam Abbey. Tradition has it that an image of Our Lady was discovered in an oak tree, and, as news spread, people flocked from all over the area to visit the statue. The image of Our Lady was thought to have been immovable until a shrine Chapel was built, just above the Holy Well. Pilgrims flocked to the shrine for hundreds of years. During the time of the Reformation, the image was taken to London on the orders of Thomas Cromwell. Despite attempts to stop pilgrims making the journey to Our Lady, pilgrims continue to make their way to a quiet, yet important place in our diocese.
