The Easter Liturgy is quite remarkable. It explodes with joy as it invites us to place our hope in Jesus, who bursts forth from the grave. The message is unequivocal: even death is now conquered and we have everything to live for because we will live for ever with the Lord. Whenever Jesus was at work among the people, all he asked for was that they believed. Faith is the ultimate and most wonderful gift for us here on earth and I pray that my faith and yours will be renewed and strengthened through our celebrations together this Easter. The deeper our faith, the more we allow the Lord to take possession of our lives and the more we live in love of him and one another. Thank you for all you do to ensure that our communities function well, but more than that, thank you for being who you are: brothers and sisters of the Lord, who witness to his resurrection.





Fr Bernard Lubienski, CSsR: May I introduce you to this Polish Redemptorist who died in 1933, but who was a student at Bishop Eton in the 1860s when the icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour came to Bishop Eton? Pope Francis has declared him ‘Venerable’, which means that his cause for  canonisation has begun. We are inviting our parishioners to join us in asking Fr Bernard’s prayers for special intentions, beginning with our confrère, Fr Tony Hunt, who has been in hospital again recently, with the prospect of needing further surgery on his other leg. We are making prayer cards available and will tell you more about Fr Bernard in the months and weeks ahead.

Comings and Goings: Fr Charles will be in Lourdes this week with the HCPT group from his old school, the Salesian College in Farnborough. Best wishes to all our parishioners who will also be with HCPT groups: it is one of the great weeks in the Lourdes’ calendar.

Please pray for Fr Raymond Mupandasekwa C.Ss.R., one of our confrères in Zimbabwe who is going to be ordained Bishop of Chinhoyi, on 7 April.
