One evening, everyone was out enjoying themselves … see below!

Today is a First Friday, and as such we remember the Sacred Heart, and ponder on the riches of this mystery. St Margaret Mary Alacoque, Apostle of the Sacred Heart, said: ‘Look upon yourself as a tree planted beside the water, which bears its fruit in due season; the more it is shaken by the wind, the deeper it strikes it roots into the ground’.

This is sound advice: as we are buffeted by the storms of life, let us drive our roots ever deeper into the ‘ground’ that is the Heart of Christ, who will never abandon us and who sustains us at every turn.

May God bless you this day.
