Hope all's well.
The Sacred Heart is another great feature which isn't uncommon in our churches. Many homes at one time would have had an image of the Sacred Heart.
It's today's feast and it's an image which speaks to us of the love of Christ.
So too does the cross speak to us of the love of Christ.
When you focus on the crucifix, when you see Christ on the cross, you see total giving, unconditional love, sacrificial love, emptying.
Look at an image of the Sacred Heart today, maybe online. Look, too, at Christ on the cross. These images can empower us to love - to love one another as God has loved us.
Some good news you may have heard that our church will be reopening of Wednesday, June 24, from 12noon - 3pm, for anyone wishing to call in for quiet contemplative prayer.
From now until the next easing of restrictions the church will be open on two days a week - Sundays, beginning Sunday 28th June between 10am and 12noon, and on Wednesdays from 12noon until 3pm.
Please remember to bring your face covering with you, and follow the directions of the stewards on sanitising your hands and being guided to designated seating.
Those who visit the church for private prayer on Wednesdays and Sundays are asked not to stay for too long (perhaps 15 minutes), at least initially, both to ensure that as many people as possible can use the limited space available and because longer exposure increases the virus risk.
Hope you have a good day
