Happy Advent

Today is the start of the Christian year as we begin the run up to Christmas, preparing ourselves to celebrate the wonderful feast of the birth of Our Lord. I do not want to preach or criticise anyone  at all this year, instead, in the spirit of our new Pope, Francis, I just want to wish everyone a very peaceful and happy time and ask all of you to remember that you are not the most important person in your life, your neighbour is; especially if he or she is sick, suffering, destitute or bereaved. Spend on them not yourself.

Have a holy and enjoyable Christmastide.
