The Messenger | April 2019

April is the month of Lent and Easter, the most significant time in the liturgical calendar. BRIAN GROGAN SJ’s article on this ‘most important event in human history’ is one of several in this issue addressing the mystery of Jesus’ resurrection, its symbolism and significance for our own lives. ALAN HILLIARD looks at what has changed in the past five years of the migrant crisis, urging us not to look away from those fleeing war and suffering; we are introduced to the Loreto Primary Healthcare Unit (PHCU), which provides an emergency feeding programme for malnourished infants in South Sudan; and our series on women of impact in the Church by Fr JOHN MURRAY focuses on Sr Clare Crockett of the Servant Sisters.

April Messenger also contains our RE:LINK supplement for teenage readers, as well as including our regular articles on art, cookery, crossword, prayer, gardening, young readers pages and much more.
