BRO ROGER -who was Prior of Taize (sadly stabbed to death) wrote:’ There are only beautiful faces, be they sad or radiant. My life is discerning in others what is ravishing them, what rejoices them; it lies in communicating with the suffering and joy of people. Ever since I was a youth, my desire has never been to condemn. For me the essential, in the presence of some other person, has always been to understand him fully. What I manage to understand somebody, that is already a festival.’

ABRAHAM HESCHEL- ‘ I did not ask for success: I asked for wonder.’

SUNSHINE AND SHOWERS – we have been well baptised this past week, and most of us have surely been caught in a downpour; few tears will be shed when we reach the end of the month. When the heat finally arrives we will be ecstatic; sales of sun cream must be at an all time low. A gentleman phoning from Knott End assured me that they were frying eggs on the pavement during the past week. It has been really lovely singing the Easter hymns, and clearly

‘Thine be the Glory’ is a great favourite. Keep singing out! Poor St George takes a back seat, though artists love painting his horse and the dragon.
