Letter from Father Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The gospel of St. John is sometimes called the contemplative gospel. It can seem to be saying nothing more than “love one another as I have loved you.”

That ‘seem’ happens to be true. When John was asked for a ‘word’ at the end of his life – a final word – He said “love one another as Jesus has loved us.”

And there’s the rub. To do that we must know Jesus; we must familiarise ourselves with Him. In prayer, in the liturgy and in our way of life. As we familiarise ourselves with Him it is surprising where we can see His face.

Keep friendly,
Fr. Richard
