For the three Irish priests


God, whose property is always to have mercy and to spare, we humbly beseech Thee for the soul of thy three servants, which Thou hast called out of the world, that Thou wouldst not deliver it up into the hands of the enemy, nor forget it unto the end; but command it to be received by Thy holy angels, and to be carried to paradise, its true country; that as in Thee it had faith and hope, it may not suffer the pains of hell, but may take possession of everlasting joys: through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God for ever and ever. Amen.

For those of you not in the know. Over the last 18 months, three priests have taken their own lives in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Please pray for the repose of their soul, that he may be merciful, that Satan's attempted reign may stop.

A new bishop for East Anglia!

See the entire collection of photographs here on Flickr, where this very photograph was taken.

What a wonderful event. Please pray for the successor of the apostles, His Grace Bishop Alan Hopes!
