A Catholic priest reflects…

A happy Easter!

What a glorious Holy Week was celebrated at St. Anselm’s with the church full to capacity throughout the Triduum and on Easter day. It was encouraging for clergy to witness such obvious support and devotion from the laity – so a BIG thank you to everyone who was present and who participated. Especially servers, choir, extra singers, bacon roll producers, flower arrangers, cleaners and those who organised and ran the Easter workshop for children on Holy Saturday. It was appreciated.

As the lead photograph shows the fast has turned to feast in our household. Jemima baked an amazing Easter cake without any help at all. It is delicious if a little daunting due to its truly gargantuan proportions! Meanwhile I broke my Lent fast with a pint of Thornbridge Jaipur. My first taste of beer since Shrove Tuesday. It was a light ale delicious, full of flavour and packed a punch.

A happy and blessed Eastertide to all readers of the blog. Mass will be celebrated publicly on Wednesday at 7pm and on Saturday at 10am. All other weekday services are cancelled this week as the clergy recharge batteries…

    Easter blessings to all.
    I like the look of the cake but I think I’d be better off with the beer – I’d be inclined to eat too much cake.
