In an age of austerity, it's more important than ever to volunteer.
Easter, is a time when we should think about the ways that we can help the less fortunate. There is plenty for us to do.
We can volunteer to do charity work and give generously to worthy organisations. But all of us can easily become too distracted by the detail of our own lives and forget about the extraordinary problems facing other people.
It could be something as simple yet priceless as picking up the telephone and speaking to someone who has not spoken to anyone else for a very long time.
We wish you and your loved ones a blessed and peaceful Easter holiday.
