Today is the beginning of our salvation and the manifestation of the mystery which is from eternity. The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin, and Gabriel announces grace. So with him let us also cry to the Mother of God: Rejoice, thou who art full of grace! The Lord is with thee.
A fond farewell to Sunil (left) and his wife Janaki. May you have and a peaceful return to Sri Lanka and we hope to see you back with us later in the year. GOD GRANT YOU A SAFE JOURNEY.
Saint Aristobulus, the brother of Saint Barnabas is called the Apostle of Britain and was its first bishop. He was ordained and sent to Britain by the Apostle Paul who mentions him in his epistle to the Romans (16:10). He endured the torments and malice of the pagans, eventually baptising them, and having established the Church here he reposed in peace.
O Holy Apostle Aristobulus, intercede to our merciful God, that He may grant our souls forgiveness of sins.
