He has done valiantly with the strength of his arm, driving the proud astray in the conceit of their hearts; 
He has put down the mighty from their seat, and exalted the lowly

There is something rather neat and in keeping with the words of Our Lady that fits with the news that the beautiful church of Our Lady of the Assumption, Warwick St is to be given to the Ordinariate, and that the notorious 'Soho Masses' held there are to cease.

Given the use of the word 'Pride' and indeed the cosy links between 'London Pride' and the 'Soho Masses' it is all the more appropriate and in keeping with the words of the Magnificat, that a group of Christians who have sought shelter in the Catholic Church with remarkable humility - abandoning positions of influence in the Church of England and submitting to the local ordinary and the Catholic Church to begin afresh - should have been given a precious gift with a chance to enhance the life of the Church in E+W in such a central location.

How ever it happened, well done Archbishop Nichols.
