“In 1854 John Mason Neale co-founded an order of women dedicated to nursing the sick. Many Anglicans in his day, however, were very suspicious of anything suggestive of Roman Catholicism. Only nine years earlier, John Henry Newman had encouraged Catholic practices in Anglican churches and had ended up becoming a Roman Catholic. This encouraged the suspicion that anyone such as Neale was an agent of the Vatican, assigned to destroy Anglicanism by subverting it from within. Once, Neale was attacked and mauled at a funeral of one of the Sisters. From time to time unruly crowds threatened to stone him or to burn his house.”

Remarkable! • Amiens Cathedral During World War
published 11 August 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

SOME WEBSITES CLAIM this image is from World War I, while others say it’s from World War II. I’m not sure, but it seems to be the interior of Amiens Cathedral with sandbag reinforcements against shell damage circa 1918:

May God preserve us from the ravages of war. May He grant us the grace to serve Him faithfully until death.
