Bishop Paul Thomas SSC, the Bishop of Oswestry delivers a mighty word:

“Our response to the challenges we face is to rise to meet them of course, with a bold and reinvigorated confidence. We have nothing to fear – Jesus Christ is risen from the dead. Jesus Christ is Lord of all. Death and Hell are overthrown, and the gate of life is opened to those who believe. Now is the time to live our catholic life at its highest pitch and greatest intensity. Only by radical renewal can we meet the evangelistic task before us. Now is not the time for decaffeinated Catholicism: only full-fat, full-on, full-faith, full-throttle Catholicism will do.”
