Silent March On The Martyrs' Way

Page 1 from 2nd May 1952


No one in his senses would have attempted to march from Lincoln's Inn Fields to Tower Hill in the blazing sun of last Sunday. There were just a thousand who, in thanksgiving for the canonization of SS. John Fisher and Thomas More. undertook the gruelling task of devotion. Too few! At Tower Hill, the scene of St. Thomas More's execution. the stalwart marchers were joined by another two thousand Catholic men and women, and pontifical benediction was given by the Archbishop of Westminster at a specally erected altar outside the English Martyrs' in Great Prescott Street. A new richly embroidered banner of the two saints which had been carried on the march by Ransorners was blessedlan the site of the martyrdom by Father McCann.
