Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”


Today we celebrate the wonderful feast of the birth of our Saviour.  When we come to admire the crib in our church, let us recall that it was for our sake God made himself a tiny child, entirely dependent on others for all His human needs.  If God did that for love of us, how much more must we humble ourselves to serve him and our neighbour.  Let us make this our resolution for the coming year.

I wish you all a very happy and holy Christmas,

Fra' Freddy
Grand Prior
