My Dear Friends
‘It’s all for Jesus’
As I write to you, I am still drying our from my experience at this years Youth Pilgrimage to Walsingham. It was a wonderful week despite torrential rain for three days non stop and storm force winds. But God is good and when I thought I was nearly at breaking point, out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain. Aren't you pleased you stayed at home with your nice comfortable warm bed?
If you know me well you will know that my pet hate in my life is camping. So I hear you say, ‘Why do you do it’? Well my short answer is ‘It’s all for Jesus’.
Believe it or not, to be part of this Pilgrimage is an experience of a lifetime, being surrounded by hundreds of young people worshipping and living the Christian life in a truly catholic way, and our young people from St. John’s are a credit to us.
This year’s theme was ‘WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?’
That is a question all of us should ask. We can try to be all sorts of people by the way we act, the way we speak, the way we look even or the way we dress, but underneath all of this, if we are true to ourselves, we are the person God has created us to be.
This month, we will have the opportunity to discover who we really are and rekindle that fire of love which burns in our hearts. You may think that the fire of love is not really burning, but that is because we are in need of something to ‘Fan the Flame’ within us so that we too may truly know who we really are. ‘We are an Easter people’, St Augustine once said ‘and Alleluia is our name’. To be Easter people, we need to Know, Love and Follow Jesus with all our hearts.
Let us use this month as a springboard to prepare for a new start, to prepare to Fan the Flame of Faith in our hearts and in this community that following the Mission, we may truly Know, Love and Follow Jesus and encourage others to do the same.
With best wishes and my prayers.
