Letter from Father Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters

We have been reminded of the great social problems of our world with the Brexit vote and with the election of a new President of the United States. No one can but be aware of the enormous problems that exist in our world. It is a relief to know that the world has always had enormous social problems and that every generation experiences people tussling for power in order to solve these problems. Into such a world our saviour has been born.

There is a solution.

A blueprint for living can be found in this Sunday’s Gospel. It is as though in the midst of all the turmoil the Lord Jesus is saying: "Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you. Follow me and I will give you the light of life."

May each one of us be consoled to know that God is looking out for us.


Fr. Richard
