CHRISTMAS MESSAGE  FROM ARCHBISHOP KEITH PATRICK O'BRIEN  PRESIDENT OF THE BISHOPS' CONFERENCE OF SCOTLAND.  It is some 57 years now since the end of the Second World War.

Posted by SCMO on 25th June 2001 in Christianity |

Last Tuesday evening, shortly before I left home for yet another Confirmation, Mgr Peter Smith, the Chancellor here, phoned me with an offer that I could scarcely refuse.

...eeling at home in the big family of the Church, John would be the first to recognise the benefit to the Father house that it has many rooms. 3. The homily of any Mass, no less a Requiem Mass, should preach about Jesus.  It is out of the Body of Christ, broken for us on the holy mountain of Calvary, that the Father Almighty has prepared the banquet of our Salvation in the rich food and fine wine of His Son’s redeeming flesh and blood.  It is because of the humbling of Our Lord Jesus on the Cross that humanity’s veil of shame and disgrace has been removed.  It is His death that swallows up our death forever. ...
