“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



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
