Letter from Father Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters

The Feast of Christ the King marks the end of our liturgical year. My Kingdom is not of this world, Jesus replied to Pilate, and neither is His kingship. King and kingdom are the same.

We share in His kingship through belonging to Him through baptism. We make His ‘Rule’ effective when we keep God’s commandments. All the commandments lead us to a loving relationship with God and our neighbour.

Loving does not mean “soppy”. As all parents know, there is such a thing as hard love.

Father Richard
