Reflection on the Year of Mercy

The year came on us in the upwind of re-entering our renewed parish church. There were conversations about indulgences and a short pilgrimage. Before the opening Mass, Bishop Peter playfully wondered ‘whatever a year of mercy means’. He entered into the spirit with three raps on the revamped old door. Do you remember the original one? The inserted glass panels constituted the change and Bishop Peter went through the ritual prayers and spoke to us of rediscovering the joys of God’s tenderness. Soon the substantial planning of the year’s programme took momentum and a highlight was the day the pilgrimage booklet materialised. Northampton Cathedral got ours and then produced one for themselves. St Aidan’s, Little Chalfont arrived before long on a pleasant Sunday afternoon on bicycles, on foot and by motor car. They were very pleased with their day and with the St Joseph’s welcome and the CWL refreshments. That set the pattern and the final group have come this very weekend from High Wycombe. Pilgrims, penitents, parishioners, CWL, Spirituality Group, Bishop Peter, Pope Francis – thank you for the blessings and the privilege and the mercies.
