the garden

  I come into the garden alone while the dew is still on the roses

  and the voice that I hear falling on my ear

  the Son of God discloses

Canterbury, England

The Anglican Church has two Archbishops – the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. The former is the senior clergy of the Anglican Church. Both have a cathedral in their home seat.

In the middle ages, Thomas Becket – the Archbishop of Canterbury – fell out with the monarch, Henry II. A group of knights decided that Thomas should be killed for his failure to follow the King’s wishes at every twist and turn. Thomas was butchered in the Cathedral by the knights. Thomas was subsequently made a saint by the Pope. After the canonisation, his tomb in the Cathedral became a place of pilgrimage for hundreds of years with pilgrims following a route from the centre of London to Canterbury. Chaucer’s epic poem-cum-story “The Canterbury Tales” was based on one of these pilgrimages.

Canterbury is still a place of prayer and quiet contemplation.
