TIMOTHY RADCLIFFE – American poet Maya Angelou said: ‘ The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. Precisely because the Church is our home, we should not face interrogation about who we are and what we have done. We are children of the household. We should also be able to express ourselves freely, ask our questions and name our doubts. At home one can be spontaneous.’

JULIAN OF NORWICH – God is nearer to us than our own soul.
