The Bishops’ Conference has instructed that, churches are closed until we are told that they might be opened again. This must be right – it is for the benefit of others and will help to stop infection.

The link below will give you a video message from Cardinal Nichols about this matter – a sober and wise message.

A prayer for Victims and Survivors of Sexual Abuse

Lord Jesus, you came to bring good news to the poor, to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and release to prisoners: hear our prayers for victims and survivors of sexual abuse.

Lord Jesus, you offered healing: heal those hurt mentally and physically by sexual abuse.

Lord Jesus, you were filled with compassion: have compassion now and answer the prayers of those in distress.

Lord Jesus, you brought sustenance: sustain with your presence all victims and survivors of abuse.

Lord Jesus, you showed great tenderness and love: help those who love and care for victims and survivors of sexual abuse.

Lord Jesus, you calmed the storm: give us your calm and healing peace. Amen


'For Christians, the future does have a name, and its name is Hope.

Feeling hopeful does not mean to be optimistically naïve and to ignore the tragedy humanity is facing.

Hope is the virtue of a heart that doesn’t lock itself into darkness, that doesn’t dwell on the past,

that does not simply get by in the present but is able to see a tomorrow.

Hope is the door that opens on to the future.

Hope is a humble hidden seed of life that, with time, will develop into a large tree.'

Pope Francis, TED Talk, 2017.
