Greetings Brothers and Sisters!
So much has happened since my last Blog. I was both shocked and saddened by the cruel death of George Floyd in Minneapolis USA! It is so important that people can protest against injustice. This heinous act occurred in a country whose cornerstone “the land of the free and the home of the brave” is being challenged daily!
“O Almighty and merciful God,
you cannot be understood by one who sows discord,
you cannot be accepted by one who loves violence:
look upon our painful human condition tried by cruel acts of terror and death,
comfort your children and open our hearts to hope, so that our time may again know
days of serenity and peace.“
Through Christ our Lord.
These are the words spoken by Pope John Paul II at St Peters Square Rome, September 12th 2001
