LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
What does holiness look like? The gift of the Holy Spirit which we receive in our sacramental life challenges us to be holy ourselves and to make the world around us holy and bring us closer to other people who we will meet on the road. Sometimes it takes a disaster for this to be clear to us and the invasion of Ukraine is undoubtedly a tragedy and a disaster not only for the people of the Ukraine themselves but also for the world in which we live.
The way in which this archdiocese has come together to support the people of Ukraine with humanitarian aid through our friend Bishop Gregory Komar of Sambir–Drohobych and the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church here in England have shown that the Spirit of the Lord is alive within us. From all over the archdiocese people have given goods, money, and their time in sorting the donations and driving trucks across Europe, to help our fellow Christians and human beings in the Ukraine. This amazing upsurge of energy within the people of the Archdiocese of Liverpool from one end of it to the other is undoubtedly a clear sign of the Holy Spirit and the true holiness of our people.
