A church divided must seek common ground

Dear Editor,

Having family and friends in The Bahamas, I read the article in The Freeport News – A church divided (December 28 issue).

We must pray for further light to enable us to see our own walk in ...

Fred Mitchell MP Fox Hill on Majority Rule Day 2011

Nassau, Bahamas - Enclosed are remarks by

Fred
Mitchell MP Fox Hill.

Mr. Party Leader, members and guests, it is my honour to
have been asked to speak here this morning in substitute for Dame Marguerite
Pindling who has asked me to say how much she regrets not being able to join
you all here this morning.  She will be speaking at a panel discussion at
the Yamacraw Branch tomorrow evening on this subject.

This subject of majority rule and the coming to power of
the PLP has been my life's work. It is  a strange feeling today that I
have speaking about these events because I remember all too clearly sitting in
the Cabinet office in 1976 at the Churchill Building talking to Sir Lynden
Pindling about  Black Tuesday, an event which had always fascinated me in
my childhood...

Letter: Pope John Paul II was a model witness to the life of Christ

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Pope John Paul II, a man of deep faith, will one day be proclaimed a saint by the Catholic Church. The Holy Father was an inspiration and a model witness to the life of Christ; a Shepherd of Truth immersed in profound humility and immense love for both God and man.

His many writings and tireless, world-wide pilgrimages of faith have been a source of strength, encouragement, confidence, optimism and enlightenment not only to Catholics, but to all men of good will.

A champion of the poor and ardent exponent of Christian unity, the Polish Pontiff was in many and such capacities as teaching, governing and sanctifying, both a beacon of light and salt of the earth.
