    Thank you for your ‘ injection’ of hope in the mornings Fr John, It is truly life changing to learn to be aware of God’s presence with us every moment of every day, not just when we are in trouble!.

    As a mother and grandmother in this modern technological, war torn, driven world, my hope is that the family will know that they are loved and for this to build resilience and good mental health. I will pray, in God’s time the results will be experienced.
