Odds and ends

Sorry. just busy lately!

Say a prayer for an Iranian woman who came to see me recently. She became a Christian just before her child was born, she was four before she had courage to take her to be baptised. Her Muslim husband beat her, her family rejected her, says she is afraid for life. She is alone frightened of every other Iranian.

Congratulations to James and Ella on the birth of their son.

Congratulations to Fr Tim on 3 million hits.

Congratulation to Fr Z on his anniversary

Congratulations Fr Sean Finneagan on the completion of his book.

And happy St Philips day.
