“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

PRAYERS FOR POLAND


AN INTERNATIONAL ASPECT TO SUNDAY MASS AT THE CONVENTUAL CHURCH
It is a well-known fact that ours is an international Order with 46 National Associations, 5 Grand Priories and 6 Sub Priories across the world.

This was brought home to us in a special way at the Sunday Mass yesterday when we were joined by two Polish confreres who sat in choir.  They had come to the Conventual Church as members of the Order to pray for the souls of those of their countrymen including their country’s President who had been killed the day before in the Katin air crash.  Not only that, they said, but also to support their British confreres in their Conventual Church and to pray for the patients in the Hospital and Hospice.  

We were delighted to have them with us even in such sad circumstances and their witness to Tuitio Fidei was inspirational.  We especially remember the people of Poland at this time and those whose lives were lost and assure them of our prayers.  

Requiescant in pace.
Our Lady of Częstochowa, pray for them.
Our Lady of Philermo, pray for them.
