THE LION KING – on from 22nd October till 28th March. Have left a list in the porch to see what the take-up is. Another blockbuster with fine reviews.
NOTHING DULL – about the weather, and the forecasters appear very excitable. Let’s hope we survive the storm – and our church roof in particular.
INTERESTING – during the seige in Paris in 1870 when food was very scarce, one restaurant resorted to inventive dishes using animals in the city’s zoo, including bear with red pepper sauce and roast donkey head – sounds tasty. And,
it is reported, that in 1930, holiday makers in Blackpool were invited to pay 3d to view Arthur Cox, who claimed he was male down his right side but female down his left. A police inspection was carried out and he was convicted of false pretences. What fun at the seaside.

LITURGY FOR THE TINY ONES – takes place on the last Sunday of the month in the parish room just before Mass – all welcome.

ROBERT VAN DE WEYER – ‘Never mock what others say. Perhaps their words are full of nonsense. Perhaps they are trying to puff themselves up. Perhaps they like hearing the sound of their voices. Perhaps they are trying to deceive their hearers. Perhaps they are foolish and dim. Perhaps they are more clever than wise. Yet amidst the useless clay you may find jewels beyond price. The word of God is in every heart, and can speak through every voice.’
CALM me. O lord, as You stilled the storm. Still me, O Lord, keep me from harm.
Let all the tumult within me cease. Enfold me, Lord, in Your peace.
