Sunday Reflection

In today’s Gospel Jesus upturns the values we can so easily get caught up in, and we can also ask, ‘who wants to be poorer, sad, in conflict, excluded or demeaned?’ Jesus does not ask us to seek out discomfort, but wants us to realise that God always holds a brighter promise for us. We seek and find God where we are but always realise that God calls us further – we have not yet arrived.
God’s mercy means doing justice for the poorest and the most humiliated. What meaningful action will I do today to bring a smile to the lips of someone who is poor or broken? Christian living is neither an armchair occupation nor a spectator sport.

Thank-you for welcoming him and especially to over 120 people who came to that light lunch on Sunday.

2018 was an exciting year for our parish.

The Archbishop’s Visitation to our parish is next weekend, January 26th/27th. Sunday Masses will be the same as usual except that His Grace will preside and preach.
