(Bottom): The Christmas Candle: a light for the world
In December 1942 Father T.A. (Ambrose) Agius, O.S.B., a Benedictine priest, looked out over the moonlit Kent coastline. He heard the sound of planes overhead and said a prayer for peace. A light shone through in the darkness. He was also inspired him to write a poem, "Wartime Christmas". He sent this to Whitehaven, Cumberland where he had previously been parish priest at St Begh's R.C. Parish (1932 - 1934).
