Greetings for the New Year! On this first day of 2021, we commend ourselves and all our intentions and concerns to the Holy Mother of God. This year, because of the pandemic, these have a special urgency.

It was on this very day in 2013 that our Community was received into the full communion of the Catholic Church. For this we are eternally grateful, that, like St John Henry Newman, we have at last come into port after tossing around on a very rough sea. We are certain that the Mother of God had a central part to play in this journey, and that she continues to do so up till this day.

May she pray for us, and may her Son’s blessing rest powerfully upon us this day and always.
