|Fr Patten's habit of calling his first issue of every year the 'Winter' number, together with the irregularity of publication, can cause confusion, and does so particularly in the years 1947-1948. The last 1946 edition is the Autumn Number, followed by Winter Number 1947, Spring/Summer Number 1947, Autumn and Winter Number 1947-8, Spring Number 1948, Summer Number 1948, Autumn Number 1948, Winter & Spring Number 1949.|
We have often been asked to give a translation of the inscription on Father Tooth’s memorial tomb in the Shrine. Here it is:-
“To commemorate the wonderful memory of the Reverend Arthur Tooth, Priest and Confessor of the Catholic Faith: who in the year 1877 sustained a long imprisonment in the quarter called Horsemonger Lane for the liberties of the Church and the true Faith. Born June 17th, 1839, he died March 5th, 1931, and was buried at Elmer’s End after fifty years spent in the upbringing of boys”.
His annual anniversary requiem followed by the Absolutions was said on Friday, March 5th, in his Chantry Chapel, when the effigy on the cenotaph was covered with a pall and surrounded by lights.
