2005 Mar/Editorial

Welcome to quite a bumper issue for this month of March! Since our request for articles we’ve been quite snowed under trying to fit everything in. Unfortunately some things had to be missed out this month: no room for something ‘just for the little ones’ though the picture for colouring-in is on p.11. The next instalment of the article on the bombing of Montecassino is particularly apt since the feast of St. Benedict falls on 21st March. There is also a short piece on the four last things by St. Thomas More – excellent meditation material for Lent though sometimes a little difficult to understand the English. Some of the more abstruse expressions have modernisations in square brackets. Mgr. Fellay’s latest letter is here with an update on relations with Rome and there is a very interesting interview with H.E. Cardinal Napier (the Cardinal Archbishop of Durban, South Africa) on the Aids crisis. The editorial staff takes this opportunity to wish all our readers a fruitful Lent and for the end of this month a blessed Easter.
