It was Holy Thursday Mass last night at Holy Spirit Church in Marple. This is one of my favourite services of the year. There is a special devotional feel to the night before Good Friday. The choir were in good voice, the eucharistic ministers reaffirmed their special role in the community. As of course does the priest, who washes the feet of twelve men. Well, it was six, including me last night.
These are difficult times for the Catholic Church, but they are also difficult times the world over. There is a constant need to stand up to injustice and to tell truths.
A very happy Easter to you all.
