Solemnity of St Chad

Homily by Archbishop Bernard Longley:

Be joyful in hope, persevere in hardship, keep praying regularly.

Our celebration of the Feast of St Chad takes on a special character this year since our annual celebration of our patron-saint is subject to the coronavirus pandemic restrictions which are still in place.  It is a welcome coincidence that the Holy See has asked every bishop in England and Wales to offer Mass on this day for the intentions of those who have died during the pandemic or as a result of Covid-19.
