“The only worthwhile striving is after the highest ideals: If you aim for an easy target, your standard will inevitably decline, and no progress is ever made, except through real effort and real suffering.” - Servant of God Fra' Andrew Bertie                                                                                                                                                 "Work as if everything depends on you, pray as if everything depends on God" - Saint Ignatius of Loyola


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
