I hope that I will be able to report that everything has gone extremely well over the past couple of days. The original icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour is in our church of St Alphonsus in Rome. Now that Cardinal Vincent Nichols has taken possession of his church, we hope and pray that devotion to Mary under this title will continue to spread far and wide across our country. There is now a copy of the icon in Westminster Cathedral!
