|Fr Zuhlsdorf and "Sir Dan" at Westminster Cathedral|
I met Fr Z again yesterday, and took both him and "Sir Dan" on an informal tour of Westminster Cathedral. We spent quite a lot of time studying the magnificent mosaics and sharing the joys of our faith with each other, whilst stopping at the various shrines to offer a prayer or make an act of devotion. Fr Z took some photos, which I am sure will appear on his blog at some point (update 13:00 - here are a couple of humorous ones!). After the tour, we bumped into one of the main "Save the Cardinal Vaughan School" campaigners, who was able to share some of her concerns with Fr Zuhlsdorf. She told us that the school's new headteacher is about to be appointed in the next couple of days and that she had some concerns about who might be given the job. It seems, though, that the Vaughan School's parents are determined to continue in their struggle to "Save the Vaughan" - a few of them attended a special Mass last night, to pray for the continuation of the School's Catholic ethos.

he sets me free" (Psalm 27:5)
Fr John Zuhlsdorf is an obviously dedicated priest and blogger, and it was a joy to be able to spend some time with him during the past two days. He also struck me as someone who is imbued with natural humility and great intelligence, as well as a firm faith in Our Lord and a devotion to the Successor of St Peter. I look forward to meeting him again some day, Deo volente!
