CARDINAL'S TWO PROCESSIONS

AN ASSEMBLY OF CATHOLIC YOUTH, UNIQUE IN THE ANNALS OF ENGLAND, MET LAST WEEKEND AT WALSINGHAM TO COMMEMORATE THE FOURTH CENTENARY OF THE DESECRATION OF THE SHRINE, AND TO PRAY FOR PEACE.

The Papal Secretary of State, Cardinal Pacelli, has written to Cardinal Hinsley to express the keen interest of the Pope in the Youth Rally.

10,000 young men and women, O.T.C. Cadets, Squires of the Knights of St. Columba, Scouts, Guides, secondary school pupils, etc., etc., travelled in special trains from all parts of the country on Friday and Saturday, to take part in the pilgrimage.

Special camps were set up where pilgrims stayed the night.

The pilgrimage was led by Cardinal Hinsley, Archbishop of Westminster, Mgr. Youens, Bishop of Northampton, and Mgr. Myers, Bishop of Cambysopolis.

Cardinal Hinsley walked twice in procession through the village streets to the mediaeval Conduit House.

The second procession was an inspiring sight: the Cardinal was escorted by pilgrims bearing lighted torches, and he lit a beacon, in a cresset surmounting the Conduit House.

Indignation was caused by the fact that when the pilgrims reached the town they found that council workmen had painted signposts " To Shrine," pointing to the Anglican shrine and away from the Catholic one.

These signposts appear to have been completed a few hours before the pilgrimage arrived.

The CATHOLIC HERALD publishes below the impressions of an Italian visitor, Cesare Bontadini, who came to England expressly to attend the pilgrimage to Walsingham.
