Easter Garden at St Mary's 2016.



Whenever people suffer today,


 with them.

The Prophet Jeremiah said in his Lamentations

“Is it nothing to you

 All of you who pass by?

 Look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow!”

This is a prophesy about the suffering of Jesus which

 we remember during this Holy Week.

 The suffering of Jesus

as he approached his crucifixion.

Our display this HOLY WEEK

 is to help us to remember

 those who continue to suffer

 as they seek to escape violence in their own land

 and to find a better life.

So we pray for all migrants

 especially those who suffered

 and the many who died in the attempt

 to reach safety.
