National Day of Mourning. Mark 2:1-12
On this Sunday before Lent, Bishop Peter Ingham addresses the whole Diocese in his Lenten Pastoral Letter entitled "Our Real Crisis." My homily this week is based on Bishop Peter's letter, with a little more material on the Gospel, the beautiful story of the paralysed man being brought to Jesus by his friends, to receive the greatest of every person fulfilled - the forgiveness of sins. The recording concludes with a true story from Ireland.
Music is Sretenye - O My Soul, rise!
Recorded at St Michael's, 9.30am Mass (8"10")
