The Little Flower in Nottingham

Nottingham Cathedral hosted the relics overnight, and with a mere 17-hour stop it is not surprising that the building wasn't large enough. In fact, it seems that up to 1500 people stood outside during the Mass yesterday evening, and a great many more have visited the relics in the city. The tour is nearing its final stages - this time next week the relics will be at Westminster Cathedral, their final stop. Today the reliquary arrives at the national shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham, before going to Oxford Oratory tomorrow. More, as always, on the official tour blog at www.catholicrelics.co.uk.
