The last Sunday in the month, a Parish Eucharist, and a dry day, all causes for rejoicing! This morning we continued our preparation for Lent, and in his Sermon Father Stephen told us about the three S's, Speaking, Silence and Suffering. We must speak of our faith and inform others of the life of Jesus and his redemption of us. We must listen for the voice of God in the silence to be guided in our lives, and we must contemplate the Suffering of Christ as we come to Lent and then Passion tide. When we suffer ourselves, God is still with us. Father Stephen promises us further sets of 'Threes' as we go through Lent!
The Choir sang 'Tantum Ergo' the words of a medieval hymn by St Thomas Aquinas, in the setting by Louis Vierne.
