Saint John-Paul II wrote: "The fact that one can die for the faith shows that other demands of the faith can also be met."                                                 Cardinal Müller says, “For the real danger to today’s humanity is the greenhouse gases of sin and the global warming of unbelief and the decay of morality when no one knows and teaches the difference between good and evil.”                                                  St Catherine of Siena said, “We've had enough exhortations to be silent. Cry out with a thousand tongues - I see the world is rotten because of silence.”                                                  Chesterton said, “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Colonel Pace today, with his niece, Father Sloan, and other friends.

It is with great joy that today we were able to celebrate the 97th Birthday of Colonel Tommy Pace, which occurred last Friday.

After Mass most of the congregation repaired to the Hospital refectory for a champagne reception. Father Sloan, the Hospital Chaplain, paid tribute to the Colonel's thirty years of service in the Sacristy, and latterly amongst the knight of Malta. He presented Colonel Pace with a gift on behalf of Matron, Mrs Malcolmson, and the Hospital.

Colonel Pace responded in kind, with a jolly speech thanking all those present for their wishes and kindness.

Ad Multos Annos.
