St. Stephen - Protomartyr

St. Stephen, the first deacon and the first martyr of the Christian Church, was stoned to death in Jerusalem on a false charge of blasphemy. Given the current plight of Christians in the Middle East, it is perhaps apt to invoke his prayers for their intentions.

St. Stephen is also one of my personal Patron Saints.

Sancte Stephane, ora pro nobis.

Happy Feast.

Clergy illness

Yesterday evening, I received the news that Fr. Tim Finigan of The Hermeneutic of Continuity was in hospital following a minor heart attack. He has subsequently posted on his blog that he is ok but will need to rest for a little while. I would like to wish him a speedy recovery, and assure him that he is in my prayers.

I f you feel able, I would ask you to remember Fr. Tim in your prayers, and also the Parish Priest of Woolwich, who is currently ill with, I understand, one of the seasonal 'bugs' that are about this time of year, and the Parish Priest of Chislehurst, who has long-term health issues.

Our Lady, health of the sick, pray for them.
