Description

Right in the heart of London, not a stone’s throw from Marble Arch is Tyburn. From 1196 to 1783 it was the site of the King’s Gallows, a place of shame to which many a common criminal made a one-way journey. In the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, the “Tree of Tyburn”, the Deadly Never-Green Tyburn Tree was erected; a triple gallows which would serve to transform this place of shame into a place of glory as a steady procession of Catholic Martyrs pilgrimed heavenward by this route. A Sacrifice of Praise is the remarkable story of a remarkable woman, Mother Marie Adéle Garnier, and of how, through her efforts, Tyburn is today the home of Tyburn Convent – the Mother House of a world-wide congregation of cloistered Benedictine nuns, and famous shrine of the English Reformation Martyrs.
