A thought for the week from Pope Francis:

There is never a reason to loose hope. Jesus says: ‘I am with you until the end of the world’.

‘Pope Francis’ Little Book of Wisdom, The Essential Teachings’ by Andrea Kirk Assaf, Harper Collins Publishers, 2015

Were you there?

 A parishioner recently composed the following reflection. It makes a powerful meditation: –

On that particular Friday there were four people in Church.

First there was the sacristan. Someone has to unlock the doors and get ready for the ceremony.

Then there was the server. If you are a server you would want to exercise your office.

The Priest was there. Without him there would be no Mass.

Last, but by no means least, there was a member of the congregation. One lonely soul who had braved the biting wind and damp air to arrive on his mobility scooter.

And why were they all gathered together?

To give honour, praise and thanks to the God who created us and gave us all we posses:-

To give thanks to Jesus Christ whose extreme sacrifice gave us the Holy Mass.

To honour those holy martyrs, and those who risked so much and gave so much in order to pass down our faith to us, and to give thanks for all those priests, monks, nuns, catechists and parents who helped us appreciate God’s wonderful gifts.

Only four people to carry such responsibility?

Were you there?
