A light of love and life

Jamaica Gleaner - - MESSAGE -

“Blessed be the Lord God of Is­rael, for He has looked favourably on His peo­ple and re­deemed them.” Luke 1:68.

JOY­FUL GREET­INGS to the clergy and faith­ful as you cel­e­brate the first 150 years of the reawak­ened Church in Span­ish Town. I am de­lighted to be as­so­ci­ated with you as you of­fer prayers of praise and songs of thanks­giv­ing to the al­llov­ing and mer­ci­ful God.

Un­der the pa­tron­age of St Joseph, your faith com­mu­nity has been at the ser­vice of Je­sus Christ in bring­ing light, love, and life to the peo­ple of the Old Cap­i­tal city. it has been re­newed and re­ju­ve­nated by the Sec­ond Vat­i­can Coun­cil, and now as it cel­e­brates this great Ju­bilee, I am cer­tain it looks to the future with hope­ful en­thu­si­asm.

Re­call the long list of clergy, re­li­gious, and faith­ful who, from their thrones of glory, will be join­ing the liv­ing faith­ful in this church, which their faith and work made pos­si­ble.

May you have a blessed and spir­i­tu­ally en­rich­ing ju­bilee year. Cor­dially in Christ, THE MOST REV­EREND EDGER­TON R. CLARKE Arch­bishop Emer­i­tus of Kingston, Ja­maica
