Sad deaths

Saturday 12th January 2013
An important part of my day was concerned with two deaths, one of a 92-year old leaving a brother now to live alone, and one in a quad bike accident on a farm.  "These things happen" as my realistic parishioners tend to say; but in one case it was in the natural course of events and in the other a shock out of the blue. 
      I hope that the Church can offer support, reassurance and an opportunity for the bereaved to express their genuine feelings with a sense of security  --  a security that we may be able to provide from our conviction that the world is sustained by ultimate Love, the Love that understands what we go through because Jesus shared all our human experiences.
