The Son of Man came to give his life as a ransom for many
The request of the apostles brings to light our natural desires to be approved of and rewarded in worldly terms. Jesus tells us his meaning of real greatness â€“ service and the care of others. Christian leadership is not like human authority nor is it based upon power and lording it over others. Quite the contrary, it is genuine when expressed in service. Jesus came not to be served but to serve. What about me? How am I of service to others? Realising that Jesus is our servant is what helps us be servants to others.
With the support of Cruse and St Giles Hospice, as well as the generosity of a large number of volunteer parishioners (& others), we are providing a bereavement support service at Sacred Heart every Friday, 10 â€“ 12am. If you know of anyone who is grieving, please take them a leaflet from the porch and invite them to join us. It is open to parishioners and non-parishioners alike.
