Day of Resurrection HE IS RISEN! ALLELUIA! Resurrection Mural at Abdij Koningsoord, Arnhem, Holland
Our present world is fast changing and is challenged by violence, division, extremism, instability and persecution. The road ahead may appear uncertain, if not dangerous. The prologue of our Constitution and Directives states:
Holy Saturday is a 'tomb day' that brings home the desolation and finality of the Cross. We have to experience its stark reality, the silence of God, to be prepared for Good Friday and for Easter Morning.
'Eli, Eli, lamma sabachtani?' - 'My God, My God, why have you abandoned me?' Way of the Cross conceived by Hans Burgman mhm and installed at the chapel of the Catholic Community Centre at Nyalenda, Kisumu, Kenya.

Given at Mass celebrating the 150th anniversary of St Joseph's Missionary Society (Mill Hill Missionaries) on the Solemnity of St Joseph, 19 March 2016, in Westminster Cathedral.
A large crowd of MHM’s, families of MHM’s, Archbishops and Bishops of Dioceses founded by Mill Hill, Diocesan Priests, Religious and lay people connected to Mill Hill, gathered in St.Peter’s Parish Church, Nsambya on the feast of St.Joseph, March 19th, to celebrate 150 years of Mill Hill, and the 121 years Mill Hill has been in Uganda. In front of the Altar was a display on two boards of the four Mill Hill Martyrs in Uganda – Hans Tauber, John Francis McGrath, Kees Spil, and Declan O’Toole. Then in the porch two boards had pictures of Herbert Vaughan and the Mill Hill Bishops in Uganda. Also a banner on the outside wall of the Church proclaimed the 150 years of Mill Hill.
This year 2016, St Joseph’s Missionary Society, commonly known as the Mill Hill Missionaries, is celebrating a century and a half of bringing the love of Christ to the four corners of the World. According to the General Superior of the Mill Hill Missionaries, Father Michael Corcoran MHM, this is a significant jubilee, a significant milestone in the life of St Joseph’s Missionary Society as “it marks a substantial contribution to the Church for over 150 years. Through Cardinal Vaughan’s vision and the growth of our own society, I’m aware that so many other missionary societies of women and men have flourished in the UK due to the scope and reach of the Mill Hill Missionaries. All these friends of ours are invited to celebrate with us this year and as we collaborate in the future to nurture the vocation of all our people today for a life on mission, whether women, men, lay or religious”.
