Queen Elizabeth thanks Tyburn Nuns for their prayers

April 16, 2015

According to the Catholic Herald:

A priest who was invited to a reception at Buckingham Palace has said the Queen asked him to convey her thanks to the Tyburn Nuns after learning that they prayed for her.

The Queen “showed great interest”, he said, and asked him to “convey her thanks to the nuns for their prayers and her greetings”.

The Tyburn Nuns are contemplative Benedictines. They have had a presence in Marble Arch, west London, for over a century. The site is where 105 canonised and beatified Catholics were martyred at the Tyburn gallows during the Reformation.
