Seventh Sunday of Eastertide
It is strange that the Church celebrates the Lord’s Ascension with such joy. Departures, especially those of friends and particularly when there is no immediate prospect of their return, are generally sad events. A later chapter of the Acts of the Apostles describes...
Our Lord’s Ascension
The Ascension of Christ into heaven is in accord with reason: firstly because heaven was due to Christ by his very nature. It is natural for someone to return to the place from whence they take their origin. The beginning of Christ is from God, who is above all...

Sixth Sunday of Easter reflection
In the pre-Covid 19 days it was rare in polite conversation that Christians be asked to account for their faith or to explain why it was they still went to church. Whether it be in the coffee shop or the pub, the dinner party or the casual encounter on the street,...
Prayer to Mary
“We fly to your protection, O Holy Mother of God”. In the present tragic situation, when the whole world is prey to suffering and anxiety, we fly to you, Mother of God and our Mother, and seek refuge under your protection. Virgin Mary, turn your merciful eyes towards...
Third Sunday of Easter reflection
Last week the reading from the Acts of the Apostles provided a vignette of the worship of the early Christians. They gathered in one another’s homes, they listened to the Scriptures, they sang the psalms with which they were so familiar from both synagogue and Temple,...
Second Sunday of Easter/Sunday within the Octave of Easter
In the UK the lock-down is set to continue for a further three weeks while in certain EU countries, most of whom started their lock-downs earlier, governments are easing their populations step by gentle step back to “normality.” Most sensible people realize that the...
Easter Sunday reflection
When the early Christians shared with fellow Jews and then with the people of the Greek-speaking Mediterranean world the Gospel/Good News, their priority was to convey the news that Jesus had risen from the dead. They insisted he was Lord. The proclamation of the...
Palm Sunday reflection
One of the great and lasting contributions which Pope Pius XII made to the universal Church is his reform of the Easter liturgies. Up until 1956 the tail was wagging the dog liturgically: because of the Eucharistic fast, Mass and the Holy Week liturgies had to be...
Fifth Sunday of Lent
This weekend in Great Britain, we will be shrouding statues and images in the church to mark the run-up to Holy Week which used to be called Passiontide. None of you, confined as you are to your homes, will be able to visit your parish church to see for yourselves...
