Apart from that, never forget how much Jesus loves you, despite everything that is happening, and how utterly pleasing you all are to him, persevering in your faith as you are. I, for one, am very proud of my Parish and her efforts to become a missionary outpost in this little neck of the Lord's Vineyard!
Ever your brother, in Christ's undaunted love,
