THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY
OF ORDINARY TIME

 

Dear Parishioners

I came across the following poem in "Blessings" by my old friend Mary Craig. It's a code poem used by Violette Szabo, the British resistance heroine who worked in France and was shot at Ravensbruck Concentration Camp. Food for thought on Remembrance Sunday...

The life that I have is all that I have,
The life that I have is yours.

The love that I have of the life that I have,
Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have, a rest I shall have,
Yet death will be but a pause.

For the peace of my years in the long grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.

Godric OSB

Live Simply - Grow a Garden

The Scouts have begun to turn a plot of derelict land at the side of the Parish Centre into a garden. The plot is all enclosed -a walled garden that can be seen from the windows of the lounge - and full of sun. Click here for further information.
