Another step towards normality! From this week onwards the Cathedral will be open from 9.30am each morning for private visits and prayer. It will close after the last Mass of the day - currently 6pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday and 2pm Tuesday-Thursday. Do pop in for a moment of reflection ...

Pope Francis has issued a powerful message for the World Day of Migrants stating bluntly ‘A better future must be built with foreigners’.

“Building the future with migrants and refugees means recognizing and valuing how much each of them can contribute to the process of construction,” said the Holy Father.

The Pope focused his message on the meaning of humanity’s “journey” in search of our true, heavenly homeland.

Pope Francis lamented ongoing tragedies of human history, which remind us how far we have yet to go along the path toward “the dwelling place of God with humanity.”

“In the light of what we have learned in the tribulations of recent times, we are called to renew our commitment to building a future that conforms ever more fully to God’s plan of a world in which everyone can live in peace and dignity.”

Concretely, said Pope Francis, all inequality and discrimination must be cast aside from society, and “no one must be excluded.”

“God’s plan is essentially inclusive and gives priority to those living on the existential peripheries. Among them are many migrants and refugees, displaced persons, and victims of trafficking.”

The Pope added that Christians must build the Kingdom of God “with” those displaced from their homes”

The new edition of Flourish is in parishes and online now. The May edition contains news of efforts to welcome Ukrainian refugees across the Archdiocese, together with a plea from the Archbishop for the UK Government to speed up its visa scheme.

The new edition also has full tributes to Fr Jim Dean and Mgr Des Maguire who died last month and a centre page spread on vocations which reveals Glasgow has more priests per head of population than most of the world!

There are amazing stories of a 500 year old lost manuscript being returned and the restoration of a shrine to Poland’s Black Madonna in Partick.

Print edition is free to take home. Online edition is here: www.flourishnewspaper.co.uk

Happy reading!

As the Church marks the Marian month of May and prepares for the upcoming World Meeting of Families in late June, Pope Francis is urging Catholics to pray for young people and their response to God’s call to holiness.

The Pope has released his monthly prayer intention in a video prepared by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network. You can view the Holy Father’s video message here - https://www.popesprayer.va/

He held up the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary as a model for Christian family life.

“When I think of a model with whom young people can identify, our Mother, Mary, always comes to mind: her courage, the way she knew how to listen, and her dedication to service.”

Pope Francis lauded Mary’s courageous and determined “yes” to the Lord, and called on young Catholics to imitate her readiness to improve the world.

He said young people must learn to take risks, in order to “build something new, a better world.”

“Don’t forget that in order to follow Mary you need to discern and discover what Jesus wants from you, not what you might think you can do,” said the Pope.

Grandparents, he added, can provide an excellent source of wisdom as we seek to discern God’s will for our lives.

“In those words of grandparents, you will find a wisdom that will take you beyond the issues of the moment,” he said.

Pope Francis ended his video message by inviting everyone to pray for young people as they make their way through life.

“Let us pray, brothers and sisters, that all young people, called to live life to the fullest, may discover in Mary’s life the way to listen, the depth of discernment, the courage of faith, and dedication to service.”

It is with sorrow that we announce the death of one of Glasgow’s oldest and best-loved priests, Fr Frank O’Rourke, former PP of St Michael’s, Parkhead.

Fr O’Rourke died at the age of 93 on Low Sunday.

Born in 1928 he was ordained a priest on 29 Jun 1955 by Archbishop Campbell.

He served in the following parishes:

1955: St Michael's Glasgow (Assistant Priest);

1963: St Kessog's (Assistant Priest);

1976: St Mary Immaculate (Assistant Priest);

1981: St Constantine's (Assistant Priest);

1984: St Luke's (Parish Priest);

1991: St Michael's Glasgow (Parish Priest);

2011: Retired.

Fr. Frank’s remains will be received into the Church for a Vigil on: Tuesday 3rd May at 6:30pm

Requiem Mass: Wednesday 4th May at 11:30am

Burial: St. Peter’s Cemetery (Dalbeth) at 1pm

All Welcome

Requiescat in pace

The Lord has risen from the dead, alleluia. The Easter message is joyful: for the pain and sadness at the death of Jesus is replaced by the joy of new life as Jesus is raised from the dead.

The Easter message is hopeful: for it reassures us that life follows death, that pain and sorrow will be overcome, and that the troubles we face in this life will not last and do not compare with the joy that God has in store for us.

May those who are suffering at this time, those with family, health, or financial worries, those throughout the world whose lives are devastated by the horror of war, find hope in the death and resurrection of Jesus.

May there be peace in our world and may the joy of the risen Christ fill our hearts.

+William Nolan, Archbishop of Glasgow
