Today the Irish Dominicans in Rome celebrate the Feast of our Patron St. Clement, Pope and Martyr (97 AD). Clement according to tradition was the third successor of St. Peter after Linus and Cletus. St. Irenaeus says of him in 202 that "Clement had seen the Apostles, he had been conversant with them, and might be said to have the preaching of the apostles still echoing in his ears and their traditions before his eyes." His lasting gift to the Church is his famous letter to the Corinthians which encourages the early church at Corinth to remain steadfast to the faith amidst trails and sufferings and remain faithful to the tradition handed on by the Apostles. According to tradition the forth pope was banished to the Crimea in the reign of Trajan and was forced to work in the mines. There his missionary work among the soldiers and fellow prisoners met with such success that the Romans had him bound to an anchor and thrown in the black sea.

"To The Faithful of the Archdiocese and to All People of Faith and Goodwill in Trinidad and Tobago" Lord, I believe; help my unbelief. (Mark 9:24) These words find an echo in my heart as I seek to respond as your bishop, to the invitation of the Holy Father to journey with him on a Year of Faith and to invite you to join me here in this Archdiocese on that journey. We in Trinidad and Tobago are adherents of many faiths. God is in our constitution. Prayer is very much a part of our life as individuals and as a nation. Yet we know how much and how often we fall short. Lord, I believe; help my unbelief! This Year of Faith extends from October 11 this year to the Feast of Christ the King, November 24, next year. Its beginning marks the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Second Vatican Council and the 20th anniversary of the promulgation of the Catechism of the…
