"O God have mercy on England! Turn, O Jesus, thy meek eyes upon that people. Let pity drop from Thy glorious Wounds and mercy from Thy Heart. In what she is blind, in what she sins, forgive her, for she knows not what she does. Have mercy on England!"
"Smells are not only the door to the soul but also the key to sexuality."
His new parish
They have a liturgy committee at this church which proclaims as its motto, "Church and Liturgy for the sake of humanity".
There is an old laybrother who can be found outside the door of the Church at Wilhering each day at sunset praying the Rosary. He did not run away and doubtless prays for the runaway abbot.
The lay brother has been on a handful of pilgrimages but he says his next pilgrimage will be when he ends his days in the monastery. He has an intense devotion to Padre Pio.
