TIm's Easter Message

Wishing you a very happy Easter from my family and everyone at the Liberal Democrats. Here's my Easter message >

Posted by Tim Farron on Sunday, 27 March 2016

Tim reflects on the Easter story and the “spectacular, calculated and deliberate act of unconditional love” it represents. He adds that that sort of unconditional love provides hope in a world where there is so much hatred and fear.

It’s a message that is relevant to all of us and makes me think of all those people who give up so much to make their communities better, or who are moved to go abroad to help in really tough situations, the nurses who put themselves in harm’s way to help in the fight against Ebola, the volunteers who helped those in Calais and Dunkirk survive the relentless Winter.

It’s a message that makes us all think about what we can offer to make life better.

    We saw the Easter message of the current Pope on TV, with simultaneous translation from Italian into English. He then drove around in a Popemobile without a protective screen, despite what had happened to a previous Pope.
    There was an article recently, written by a previous editor of the Catholic Herald, saying that this is the time and Pope Francis is the man, to allow Roman Catholic priests to marry. He said that the prohibition was man made and said when. He pointed out that it is not absolute because there are married priests in the Roman Catholic Church now. They married in the Church of England, converted to Catholicism, re-qualified as priests and remained married with the permission of the Catholic Church. The priesthood is dwindling in numbers and ageing. Allowing married priests would not be the only solution, nor sufficient by itself, but would make a contribution. Additionally, parishioners prefer to take some of their problems to married priests.

    Good sermon. But are we still doing politics?
