Remembrance Sunday


Today we remembered all the casualties of war.  On this centenary of the signing of the Armistice we particularly remembered those caught up in the First World War.  We reflected on the words of Harry Patch, “the last fighting Tommy”, who died, aged 111, in 2009.  He said, ” Why did we fight?  I asked myself that many times.  At the end of the war, the peace was settled round a table, so why couldn’t they do that at the start, without losing millions of lives.” Something for us all to think about.

May their sacrifice help us to reflect deeply,

May their memory burn brightly in our minds,

May peace be with them,

And may peace be kindled in our hearts.
