A message from Fr John

Posted on: 17/01/2021

Dear Friends

Good morning

These days can get long and dreary for all of us, young and old, and we sometimes need the grace of God for a sudden inspiration that will give a glimpse of hope and light - but we need to be open-hearted enough to see it, to catch it, to hear it, to feel it.

How about this poem from Siegfried Sassoon - and remember the horrors he had been through

Everyone Sang

Everyone suddenly burst out singing:
And I was filled with such delight
As prisoned birds must find in freedom,
Winging wildly across the white
Orchards and dark-green fields; on - on - and out of sight.

Everyone’s voice was suddenly lifted;
And beauty came like the setting sun:
My heart was shaken with tears; and horror
Drifted away . . . O, but Everyone
Was a bird; and the song was wordless; the singing will
never be done.

O for that grace - let’s pray

St Joseph, beacon of hope, pray for us

Every blessing

Fr John
