When the Saint’s go marching in could be the anthem for the lay-initiave Rosary on the Coast which takes place this Sunday 29th April, 3pm at around 300 locations in the British Isles.
Their shore way has left an incredible ecclesiastical heritage which in our moment of history beckons a rediscovery of treasure, which is the deposit of faith.
Across the British Isles our Patron Saint’s are inviting us to join them in prayer for Faith, Life and Peace. Saint David, Saint Patrick, Saint George and Saint Andrew are staging a trumpet call for our nations to turn back to God.
A trumpet call to turn back to God
The Children of Israel heard the trumpet call many times on their journey through the deserts to the Promised Land. In the seventh month, there was a blast of trumpets to proclaim a holy gathering and day of rest (Lev 23:24).
Similarly, the tribes were called with a trumpet blast to stand before Mount Sinai - wrapped in smoke because the Lord descended on it in fire (Ex 19:18).
They are told they must send a loud trumpet throughout the land to proclaim the Day of Atonement (Lev 25:9). In Numbers 10, they are told that trumpets will sound to summon the congregation and to break camp.
When the trumpets blew the walls of Jericho fell. 120 trumpeters made a huge noise of praise and worship when Solomon dedicated the temple. Psalm 98 tells us to make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord with trumpets and the sound of the horn.
In the book of Revelation, seven trumpets are sounded which heralds the Ark of the Covenant, the Great Sign of Our Lady.
