It is always a great joy for me to celebrate a Nuptial Mass and today's was no exception. Chatting to the groom beforehand, I discovered that he is the 5th member of his family to be married at St Ann's - what a marvellous family connection.
Congratulations Steve and Veronica and our best wishes for a very happy married life together.
Please keep them in your prayers as they begin married life together.

St Catherine of Genoa in her Treatise writes,
'No one is barred from heaven. Whoever wants to enter heaven may do so because God is all-merciful. Our Lord will welcome us into glory with his arms wide open. The Almighty is so pure, however, that if a person is conscious of the least trace of imperfection and at the same time understands that Purgatory is ordained to do away with such impediments, the soul enters this place of purification glad to accept so great a mercy of God. The worst suffering of these suffering souls is to have sinned against divine Goodness and not to have been purified in this life.'
