Letter from Father Richard
Have you allowed yourselves to sunbathe this week? Have you relaxed in the presence of the sun’s brightness? Have you dozed in a state of contentment embraced by the warmth surrounding you?
Well, I don’t suppose many of you have, but I was not really speaking in a literal way; I was speaking in a metaphorical way. Have you allowed yourselves to relax in God’s presence this week? The first two commandments may be easy to remember, but they are difficult to accomplish.
We will be able to love our neighbour only inasmuch as we allow ourselves to be loved by God.
Afford Him some of your time – in prayer, meditation and reading.
Have a good week.
