Time for reflection:
1. Dreadful News
Appalled to learn that all Catholic Bishops in Eritrea are threatened with imprisonment if they and the country's Catholic priests, do not join the army (to fight
rather than as army chaplains). Good though to see that despite the risks, they are taking a
stand against such dreadful politicians' orders but an outcome may be the
banning of the Catholic Church there.
2. Great News
My 39th Pilgrimage with HCPT to Lourdes over Easter Week is due to commence
on Easter Monday at 04;30 hours - with HCPT Group 35.
