St Albans church bell restored in memory of those who have lost their life to Covid.

  • Major Glass and Glazing

Elm Park Councillors Stephanie Nunn and Barry Mugglestone attended a special service of celebration in the grounds of St Albans church, last Thursday December 17th.

The socially distanced ceremony was held at Langdale Gardens, where the Two Elm Park Councillors were asked to unveil a plaque to celebrate the restoration of the church bell in memory of those who lost their life to Covid. Prayers and scriptures were read with a time of reflection. Three ladies whose mother’s had died, lit the candles.

The occasion lasted for thirty minutes and was led by Father Maurice Gordon, the Parish Priest of St Albans church. The bells rang after the blessing was taken.

The bell had been hoisted up on December 11th after being anointed with Holy oil and water.

    I don’t doubt the sincerity of all those involved, but there is something manipulative and partisan in restoring a church bell in memory of those who have lost their life to covid, as opposed to including all those who have died due to the government’s lockdown response to covid.

    A seasonal ‘flu’ virus is an act of God but the response is an act of man, and the response has made the cure far worse than the disease, by wrecking the mental/health and economy of Britain. Lockdowns are unprecedented and the restrictions and closures are costing lives and livelihoods and so almost entirely counter-productive.

    The unprecedented response included church leaders agreeing to close churches and so sorry, but are these ceremonies intended to mask a guilty conscience and deter scrutiny as Christian religious leaders have never before closed their doors to salvation, even during WWII.
