"When England returns to Walsingham, Our Lady will return to England," said Pope Leo XIII (1810-1903).

Take a journey through 1000 years of English history with this unique and beautiful production, filmed on location in Walsingham, England. Once known as one of the four great shrines of Christendom, Walsingham was visited by Saints and Kings. Even King Henry VIII, who was responsible for the ruthless repression of England's national shrine of Our Lady, went there on pilgrimage in 1511 with Queen Catherine of Aragon. Now, after centuries of desolation, Walsingham is once more a place of pilgrimage with thousands visiting every year.
