Unexpected Easter Joy

Easter is always an occasion of joy at Mercy House. We always have the raining down of chocolate eggs from heaven – this “heaven” being the garage roof! But that was not all. No one expected an even more joyful blessing: our former Comboni Provincial, Father Jeremias, who was a great supporter of Mercy House until he was transferred to Rome, suddenly appeared at our garden gate! He had come to SA on a short visit and remembered our Easter celebrations well. It was a great joy to see him and we thank him for taking the time to pop in. The photo shows Father with some of our Mercy House family on that occasion. We hope for this blessing again and know that Father Jeremias continues to follow our progress with interest and affection from a distance.
