“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 Day-Centre at St John's Hopsice
This evening, the Wednesday Lent course at St James's Spanish Place continues with a talk by Andrew Gallini, the Director of Clinical Services at St John’s Hospice which is part of the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth. The treatment of the terminally ill – and their proper palliative care – is a crucial area of modern medicine and social provision: this should be a fascinating and instructive evening. 

Refreshments are offered after the 6pm Mass in the social centre at St James's Church, where the talk will be given at 7pm – followed by questions and discussion, finishing at 8pm (Compline is sung at 6.40pm in church that same evening).
