Pray, pray pray

All we can do is to pray, pray, pray for Zimbabwe as they go to the ‘elections’ tomorrow. We hear that people are being pressurised to attend rallies and are to be ‘frogmarched’ to the polling stations. Some of the priests are offering Mass at the risk of their lives.

Perhaps John Bradburne, the ‘vagabond of God’ who allowed himself to be murdered rather than desert his beloved leprosy patients, should take a special interest in the progress of his adopted country. (If you don’t know of John Bradburne, then listen to two programmes I made about him whilst I was at Vatican Radio and which are available online at

May God love, bless and protect Zimbabwe tomorrow, restoring peace and dignity to all those who are suffering.

God bless,
Sr. Janet
