It is good to be able to send out the Newsletter together with the Readings for Mass this weekend.
I am sure that all of us have been moved by the tragic images coming out of northern Syria and Turkey this week, making us feel so helpless in many ways, and I hope, too, hugely appreciative for what we have. The hands that we can touch deserve a longer squeeze this week, as we value their presence in our lives.
The Newsletter contains details of CAFOD’s appeal and that of the DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) with whom CAFOD works in partnership in situations like the earthquake if you feel able to offer any financial help.
At times such as these we are grateful for the enormity of God’s hands, and it is into those hands that we place all of our prayers, for the nameless and unknown to us in Syria and Turkey, and the known and named much closer to home.
With an assurance of daily prayerful remembrance, kindest thought and affection.
As ever, Fr. Nicholas
