This issue of PRAXIS gives us an opportunity to contemplate the blessings that have come through the parents, wives and children that surround our deacons, priests and bishops. These precious people give love and support to those who communicate God’s love and support to all. Their familial ministry of comfort to our clergy is therefore a service towards all. For them we give thanks to God, and for them we pray for mercies to be multiplied, in this world and in the Kingdom to come.
