What a lovely crisp and bright morning.
Another story from the mission magazines - this time it’s from ehe Columban missionaries
There was once a prayerful woman who claimed to have had a vision of Christ. So she went to see the bishop. ‘Did you talk to him?’ he asked.
‘Yes,’ she replied, ‘I did.’
‘Well,’ said the bishop, ’the next time he appears to you ask him what was the bishop’s greatest sin before he became a bishop’.
About three months later she returned. ‘Did you see the Lord again?’
‘Did you ask him the question about my sin?’
‘Yes. I did.’
‘And what did he say?’
She smiled and answered, ’The Lord said, “I don’t remember any more”’.
Maybe during this time of lockdown we too might learn to forget any hurts or grievances and simply learn again to count our blessings.
Please pray for all those who are sick

Pope Francis has called on believers from all religions to spiritually unite themselves in a Day of prayer, fasting and works of charity today, May 14th.
While the day will not feature any public gatherings of worship, it is an opportunity for individuals to spiritually unite for a moment of reflection, hope and faith.
