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


The last day of our Easter retreat, the glorious culmination of the solemn celebration of the Passion, as we celebrate our Salvation in the dark of the night with Our Blessed Lord's Resurrection in the first hours of Easter Day.

We are very grateful to the several people who took the photographs which form the reports of the past four posts upon the Triduum ceremonies.  Remember also to scroll down to the short video clip of the Vigil, or click here; we are told there are some others, and they will be added to that post in due course.
The church awaits
