Happy & Peaceful New Year to You All. 

Fr. Leo  Pyle


New Year Wishes

May peace break into your homes

and may thieves come to steal your debts.

May the pockets of your jeans

become a magnet for £100 notes.

May love stick to your face like Vaseline

and may laughter assault your lips!

May happiness slap you across the face

and may your tears be that of joy and mercy

May the problems you had,

forget your home address

May 2016 – the year of mercy

be the best year of your life!!!!
