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


This week sees the release in London of a new film of the life of the Carmelite Monastery in Notting Hill, a short journey from the Conventual Church, and probably well known to many of us.  The title is "No Greater Love".  

The film is a spiritual meditation, in much the same way as the 2005 film "Into Great Silence", which received such wide and unexpected audiences.

Bishop George Stack has written a excellent review of this haunting film of the silent life of the Carmel on the Diocesan website, which you may read here.  Further details may be found here, and on the official website,

You are warmly encouraged to go to see this film, which has limited releases this month, check details on the website:
