Quotes

"Good Friday, today is the day on which Christians learn again to shed tears of compassion, tears for our crucified saviour, tears for every victim of abuse, tears for the destitution of so many in the world today, tears of shame and anger at the slavery that disfigures our modern world. They are tears which should be shed as, together, we all resolve each to play our part in the healing of our wounded world."
...of life to us, then indeed, in the words of Pope Francis, we are a people who wish to share with others our joy in knowing Christ Jesus our Lord. "Grant, we pray, O God, that we may draw from so great a mystery the fullness of charity and life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen"
"And for this, the church, today, commemorates the Last Supper, when Jesus instituted the Eucharist, he also - in the ceremony - performs the action of the washing of the feet, which reminds us that we must be servants of one another. Now I will perform this act, but all of us, in our hearts, let us think of others and think in the love that Jesus tells us that we have to have for the others and let us consider also how we can serve better, other people. Because Jesus wanted it this way amongst us."
Says producer Paul Hardy: "The team who brought you 'One Life, One Passion' in 2009 are back, with a mixture of contemporary and historical realism. In 2009, over 800 people gathered for just one performance, and many were visibly moved. With an all-age family vibe, a vibrant local cast, and a script that’s even better than before, it’s the perfect way to round off the Easter weekend."
