Dear Fellow Parishioners,
Hope you are not too bored and finding time for the activities we had no time for before “lock-down”. I am listening to more music, reading, gardening, reflecting, praying the Divine Office in a more disciplined way and, of course, playing with the cats more. This could become a new way of life, perhaps my vocation and your vocations and careers could be enriched in some of these ways, giving us a fuller life once this is over.
It is good to remember that in times of crisis the best can come out of our humanity and be a reminder that there is a lot of good in what appears to be a dysfunctional world, e.g. greed, sinfulness and disrespect for our environment.
This is a good time to review what is important and to prioritise in our lives, and in the life of the church, what is essential.
With every good wish and God’s Blessing,
