As we have no Sunday Mass congregation we would greatly appreciate your support where possible for our weekly Planned Giving to help with the basic maintenance of the Church and Parish. We know that many people have been affected financially by the Covid- 19 crisis so any support is greatly appreciated. You can do so by clicking on the `Donate` button on our website www.balbrigganparish.com Thank you. Fr. John
DESPITE THE LOCKED DOORS
John tells us that Jesus shows himself to the apostles, "despite the locked doors." John is not just referring here to the heavy wooden doors of their hiding place. He is talking about the closed doors of their hearts. Jesus doesn't wait until they calm down or get perspective on the situation. Rather, he breaks through the door of their fear announcing the good news that he is alive.
