FLAME 2 at Wembley!... 

How is it possible to try and describe what was a fantastic day of joy, praise, and prayer? 

We were joined by 8,000 young people who had come along like us to 'celebrate with joy the mercy of God.'

Below is a photo of the Redemptorist Youth Ministry group!

Among the speakers and presenters we had the 57 year old Cardinal from Manila, Cardinal Luis Tagle who gave a stirring presentation on what is the joy of Gospel. He spoke clearly to our hearts about the mercy of God and how God has a special care and concern for each person.

Some of the group outside Wembley for their lunch break!


Some took the opportunity to take a photo or two...



Another speaker was the famous musician, singer and Grammy award winner, Matt Redman. His music was inspirational and nearly lifted the roof.


Next, from the House of Lords came Baroness Sheila Hollins and she spoke simply and clearly about mental health issues.


Fr Timothy Radcliff OP led us in reflection before the Blessed Saccrament came among us.


Some young people were also presented to us to speak about their experiences helping other people. They had been working in Zimbabwe to name just one country.


Fr Richard Reid CSsR, Fr Maurice O'Mahoney CSsR, Bishop Ralph Heskett CSsR and Br Charles Randall CSsR.


To try and give you some idea...

A word of thanks to Paul Murphy our Youth Ministry man in the Province! His great work made it possible for us to experience this wonderful event.


As it came to an end we applauded and gave thanks!


Let us hope and pray that they have started planning the next one!
