Welcome to this Advent issue of the Light of the North with lots of news from around the Diocese and plenty of interesting features including Eileen Grant’s article about the meaning of Advent, ‘The Coming of the Lord’. Then, continuing with the Advent theme, Dr Shelagh Noden looks at one of the most beautiful and evocative traditions of the Church associated with Advent, the Rorate Mass. In addition, Fr John Boles, Regional Director of the Columban Missionaries in Britain, meets two inspirational Columban supporters from Myanmar who are keeping the faith alive on the Orkney Island of Sanday. Our Polish and Scottish readers might also be interested in reading Lidia Konar’s remarkable story about William Pyka, a Polish lawyer with an enduring faith.
