This week we tell you all you need to know about the new Bishop of Brentwood and include extensive coverage of the Vatican conference on human trafficking, organised by the bishops of England and Wales. Francis Phillips interviews the former rock journalist who says the Church helped her to heal the wounds of sexual abuse. Fr James Martin tells us how to be like Christ during a crisis and Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith explains why the Cross is not tragic.
Our edition also includes a free magazine to inspire you through the Paschal Triduum over the next few days. This year we focus on the Women Who Never Left the Side of Jesus. Amy Welborn urges us to speak out with the courage of the women who saw the risen Jesus, Laura Keynes reflects on staying with the suffering and Margaret Mizen writes that she clung to the Blessed Virgin Mary, after the murder of her son Jimmy.
We also bring you tasty Easter treats from Melanie McDonagh including Easter biscuits and stuffed eggs.
