DURING LENT – It doesn’t get any easier to get started – and some people have enough penances in their lives! If we are retired we might be able to make a weekday Mass one morning or say a little of the Rosary for the people of the parish.
HUGH LAVERY -‘A nation needs its Lent for learning and a lean time can be a season for health. Healing, making whole, revealing, revaluing – these were the works of Jesus and his words did not and do not meet with easy approbation. The message of Jesus is not of gloom but of glory and this is so hard to take.’
CHRISTOPHER LOGUE – ‘when all else fails, try Wales.’
