Say a prayer for a South American woman in my parish, for three years she has been in Brighton with her little girl. She is homeless and her and her child move from friend to friend spending a few days here, a few days there. They have lived like this all the time she has been in England. She is terrified that if she is forced to return home she and her child will be killed by her child's father, a drug dealer and a gangster.
Also pray for some of the priests of my diocese who are feeling a little broken and concerned about the future at the moment.
