Michaelmas



Today is Michaelmas (and don't forget Ss Raphael and Gabriel). It is the name day of my eldest boy -please pray for him.

St Michael is the patron saint of paratroopers and airborne troops. Of your charity pray for my dear departed father who won his wings in WWII and who I hope has wings now.

Pray too for his successors who stand watch in the night so we stay safe in our beds. I think especially of 16 Air Assault Brigade, who have fought bravely in Afghanistan against a fanatical enemy. Some of these brave men and women have been justly recommended for this country's highest award for bravery, the VC.
