Fr. Hugh Logan depicts a Roman Soldier during Passion Play
Whenever I see a play on a theatre stage or on a cinema/TV screen it does me good. It opens up my world; it enlightens and enriches my world!   Reading a certain type of novel has the same effect on me! It’s not that I’m escaping the ‘real world’ by entering the world of fiction. I find I’m being drawn into, even sharing in the world of other people – their joys, sorrows, successes and failures. I would even go so far as to say that these excursions throw light on my own self, my own world.

Last year, on November 21, the feast of the Presentation of Our Lady in the Temple, Pope Francis issued a special apostolic letter, addressed to all consecrated people, priests, brothers and sisters, asking them to “wake up the world”  with their testimony of faith, holiness and hope.        
Further, he stated that he had decided to proclaim a Year of Consecrated Life on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church “Lumen Gentium”, and of the Decree “Perfectae Caritatis” on the renewal of religious life.

The reredos which adorns the High Altar of the Church of the Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph at St. David is a beautiful masterpiece of church art. The edifice was en route to St. Lucia or Martinique on the ill- fated SS Orinoco which ran aground and sank off La Sagesse Bay on November 2, 1900 -  All Soul’s Night.  Legend has it that the ship mistakenly took the lighted candles in the cemetery for the lights of the village and ventured too close to the shore and was wrecked on the barrier reefs.

Constitutional reform or review is on the lips of nearly everyone in Grenada.  This exercise has been going on since 1985 after the restoration of democracy following the demise of the revolution.  The early attempts were met with lack of interest bordering on apathy, This time, the interest of Grenadians has been heightened by the question of changing from the Privy Council to the Caribbean Court of Justice, replacing it as the Court of final appeal.
