"The face of God is that of a merciful father, who is always patient... He does not tire of forgiving us if we know how to turn to him with a contrite heart... The Lord never tires of forgiving. We are the ones who tire of asking for forgiveness." (Angelus, March 17, 2013)
Of your charity please pray for the repose of the soul of Audrey Hook (pictured on the right of the photo with her daughter Shirley at the 2008 International Mass on Pentecost Sunday) from my previous parish of St Simon Stock, South Ashford. At Mass as normal last Sunday, she had been taken into hospital during the week but died this afternoon. She would have celebrated her 78th birthday next month.
Audrey was a most faithful and loved parishioner. May the Lord grant her an eternal reward of everlasting light, happiness and peace.
