Here is an image of central Birmingham, taken from our monastery on Old Oscott Hill. Tucked away amongst the tall buildings is our own St Chad’s Cathedral, keeping watch over the city. In these times, the saints are more important than ever, for they are praying for us in all our challenges. As we begin to face ‘new normals’, we pray that our faith may burn ever more brightly and that our love for our Lord may be what defines us. That has not changed.

May God bless you this day.
