Remembrance Sunday 2014

The Unutterable Beauty

The devastation of the landscape in the battlefields of Northern France and the sacrifice of so many lives in the First World War were represented by the decorative displays in St Mary’s Church Macosquin for Remembrance Day.  
They illustrate the shattered woodlands, shattered bodies and the blood that was shed during that conflict, but also speak of a different tree of sacrifice.  They represent the One who  gave his life that others might live, which is illustrated so movingly by the military Chaplain, Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy in his collection of War time poems, ‘The Unutterable Beauty’ -  the Sorrow of God
