Today March 16th is the 39th anniversary of the death of Monsignor Bruno Scott James – first priest custodian of the Slipper Chapel

 When Mgr. Bruno Scott James died in 1984, his great friend, Bishop Gordon Wheeler of Leeds, spoke of him in the fondest of tributes: “Enveloped in a black cloak, his head shorn, and with a Siamese cat perched on his shoulder, sitting on the steps of the Slipper Chapel and pouring out patristic wisdom  was an inspiration to many. He had a great gift  of prayer himself and was able to communicate this to others.”

Rest in peace dear Mgr. Bruno Scott James and may your dream of Walsingham becoming a power-house of prayer become an even greater reality.
