The Martyrs' Holy Triumph
Our pilgrimage in honour of St Margaret Clitherow and the martyrs of York passed through the streets these holy men and women themselves walked.
We began at the Bar Convent, where St Margaret's hand is venerated:We prayed the Litany of the York Martyrs:
Ready to go:
Through Micklegate Bar, where the heads of many martyr saints have been displayed.
To the Ouse Bridge, where in the Toll Booth on 25th March 1586, Margaret Clitherow was crushed to death:
On towards the Shambles:
Outside the Shrine of St Margaret:
After visits to the Shrine, we continued along the Shambles:
Into Low Petergate:
Around the Minster:
Through the Dean's Park:
And eventually to the Oratory:
Fr Stephen preaches at the Mass:
The elevation of the Chalice:
St Margaret Clitherow and all the martyrs of York -
pray for us.
