“And a Good Friday Was Had by All”

“A few years ago I walked a set of The Stations of the Cross that had been erected in a farm paddock in the Hunter Valley. The day on which we walked it was hot, dry and dusty. Many of the participants were quite elderly; some were very unsteady on their feet…one of the participants stumbled and fell,” says The Very Rev’d Dr Peter Catt

"In 1223 Francis decided to celebrate Christmass in the small village of Greccio, which is located just outside Rieti in the Lazio region of Italy. In a small cave chapel he constructed the first nativity scene," (The Very Rev'd Dr Peter Catt)

"You have come to us as a small child"

“Bernard of Clairvaux and his Cistercian order led the rediscovery of the importance of Christmass as the celebration of God coming amongst us; the celebration of the incarnation, of the Word made flesh, to pick up the imagery to be found in John 1,” says The Very Rev’d Dr Peter Catt

Standing for love in the face of hate

“In the face of such bigotry, persecution and extremism, Christians are always called to stand with and protect ‘the least of these’. Every single one of us is created in the image of God. So to love God we must love one another – showing compassion, courage and generosity of spirit. It’s really that simple,” says Bishop Jeremy Greaves
