LOVE

Love, not hate is at the centre of the Christian message. This love should be rooted in prayer. If we love God with all our heart, it means giving ourselves totally to him in an intimate relationship through prayer and worship. We cannot ignore our neighbour if we claim to love God. It is through word and action that we become fully and totally Christian.

The entire story of salvation, to know that God is love is reassuring “Come to me all who labour and are heavily burdened”, he said, “and I will give you rest”. 

As Michael Paul Gallagher once put it “to claim to love Jesus but not his neighbour is not love”. The Lord demands demonstration of that love. It is through word and action that we become fully and totally Christian. Love demands that I learn how to focus my attention on the needs of those I love. 

Alfred Lord Tennyson put it years ago:

“Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved atall”

NOVEMBER MONTH OF REMEMBERING

FEAST OF ALL SOULS

Thursday 2nd is the Feast of All Souls

MASS TIMES: 7.45am; 10.00am; 6.30pm.

All public masses on Thursday and Friday and all First Friday Masses will be offered for Altar List of the Dead. Dead Lists are available in the Church. Please fill one up, if you would like to do so and drop into the sacristy or the parish centre.

MASS FOR THE BEREAVED

The 10.00am Mass on Saturday 4th will be for all families in our Parish who have lost a loved one during the year.

It is the teaching of the Church and the practice of our ancestors to remember the dead during this month.

Birth, growth and death are of the natural order. Each of us will die some day as it is part of God’s plan for us. Let us follow God’s command and pray for the souls of the dead who have gone before us – our relatives, neighbours, ancestors and all the holy souls. May God increase their glory, ease their pain and grant them remission of their sins.

We can also visit a church or cemetery during the month.

It is comforting to remember that our relatives are not gone from us but before us and one day we will be with them in Paradise.


PARISH GROUPS USING CHURCH

Anyone wishing to use the church needs to book in with the Parish secretary.


SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPELS

Matthew 22:34-40

You may feel some sympathy with the Jews struggling to cope with 613 laws and wondering which were the important ones. But have you ever felt overwhelmed by the rules and regulations of your own tradition? And have you ever been blessed by meeting someone, or reading something, that was able to cut through all the layers and point out to you what is essential in life? Who was that person? What did they say or do? Is there some phrase or text that encapsulates such wisdom for you?

If you were asked what is important in life, what would your answer be? Recall the experiences and relationships you have had. Which are the ones that you treasure most? What has particularly enriched your life? How would you encourage another peron who asked you how they could live a full life?

(John Byrne, OSA, Intercom 2017)
