70-Year Jubilee

Warm congratulations to parishioner Sr Kathleen Breen, who is celebrating 70 years since her profession in 1947. ...That’s two years after World War II! As a Franciscan Missionary of Mary, Sr Kathleen served abroad for many years, including in Sri Lanka in South Asia. She still keeps busy here in Harold’s Cross, visiting the sick and working with the Legion of Mary among other roles. We honour Sr Kathleen’s extraordinary commitment, faithfulness and life’s work, and wish her continuing happiness and joy in her vocation.

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is being observed from 18th to 25th January.
When the Russian–Finnish boundary line was being redrawn, a farmer was told that the border passed right through the middle of his land. He therefore had the option of having his land taken into Russia or Finland. He promised to give the matter serious thought, and after some weeks announced that he wanted to live in Finland. A host of incensed Russian officials descended on him to explain the advantages of belonging to Russia, not Finland.
The man heard them out, then said, “I am in complete agreement with everything you say. In fact, it has always been my desire to live in Mother Russia. But at my age I simply won’t be able to survive another of those Russian winters.”
