We remembered the dead and their loved ones in a moving celebration with Bishop John and a large number of concelebrating priests. Among the people of Manchester and beyond, the shock and devastation of last night’s cowardly and barbarian attack has been tempered by a tangible sense of proud defiance. We gave voice to that in our final hymn: not Abide with me, but
Thine be the Glory, risen, conquering Son.
Endless is the victory thou o’er death hast won.
