February 24th – March 2nd 2018

Greetings from Hurbert House. Many thanks for all the words of love and care which I received. These have been a source of great strength and comfort to me.
I trust that by now you have been made aware of my terminal condition. I’m being well cared for here and up and about, though missing you all very much of course.
I trust we’ll get the opportunity to meet again before too long.
Love to each and every one of you.
Father Michael.
