Father John writes

This week I guess most of us have spent time watching the antics of our politicians despite the fact that we long for the whole Brexit issue to be sorted out since it increasingly dominates the media to the detriment of other important issues.

Yet they face the most significant decision for our future that has faced us for many years.

I try to pray for our politicians without being judgemental about their motivation, but it is not easy!

When alone, I find myself shouting at the Television screen – something I have not done for many years!

So, I try to focus my prayer for our political leaders that, instead of shouting at each other, they may seek to listen to each other, and may always put the common good first, instead of giving priority to the interests of their Party.
