Measham Magi

I couldn't resist taking this picture after Saturday evening Mass at St Charles: three wise men of differing generations come to visit the infant Christ on the feast of the Epiphany.

Newsletter for 31 December/1 January - Mary, the Holy Mother of God

Click here to read the latest newsletter.

For fifty years, January 1st has been kept by the Church as the World Day of Peace. Here is this year's message from Pope Francis. It starts:

At the beginning of this New Year, I offer heartfelt wishes of peace to the world’s peoples and nations, to heads of state and government, and to religious, civic and community leaders. I wish peace to every man, woman and child, and I pray that the image and likeness of God in each person will enable us to acknowledge one another as sacred gifts endowed with immense dignity. Especially in situations of conflict, let us respect this, our “deepest dignity”, and make active nonviolence our way of life.
