Bulletin 24 – 31 Aug

GOD CORRECTS US in a fatherly way so that we don’t get distracted from His Kingdom, and then suffer spiritual dryness or burnout! He wants us to live a communitarian spirituality – putting the other first, and being united in purpose. This ‘collective’ spirituality that we practice in our parish – laity, religious and clergy – moves away…

Bulletin 17 – 24 Aug

JESUS cautions us that if we are to be His followers, conflict is unavoidable. Jesus never promised us a journey without crosses: the inevitable part of being a Christian. At stake is the uncompromising nature of the Gospel – the light exposing the darkness of our world. Jesus teaching must move us to ask: Is…

Bulletin 10 – 18 Aug

Jesus asks each of us to be constantly vigilant. We are called to leave behind our old ways of sin and selfishness, and to put our full trust in God, Who calls us to walk in the way He has planned for us. Each day, we have many opportunities to show our faithfulness – and to be willing to be exposed…

Bulletin 3 – 10 Aug 2019

Jesus cautions us about greed, and the hold that possessions have over our heart. The frustrations, disappointments and incomplete joy of pursuing material possessions are a reminder that happiness does not come from having what we want, but being content with what God has given us. In the light of today’s Gospel, each of us has some hard thinking to do about…

Bulletin 27 Jul – 3 Aug 2019

The words of the Our Father make it a community prayer, while the tone of the prayer is intimate. It is a short and simple profession of faith. Prayer is our conversation with our heavenly Father. It’s walking in His presence, and deepening our bond with Him. God wants us to be real and human. Prayer deepens our sense of dependence on His saving…

Bulletin 20 – 27 Jul 2019

Often we are so busy doing the work of the Lord that we forget the Lord of the work – Who is the motivation for acts of Christian charity. The Gospel tells us that no matter how busy we are, we should take time to be with the Lord and be guided by Him. The danger is that if we…

Bulletin 13 – 20 Jul 2019

The Good Samaritan is Jesus, who reaches out and heals our wounds. The Gospel emphasizes that there is no love of God without love of neighbour. Being a good neighbour is not about helping those who are good to us, but going beyond the call of duty to help those in need, even the stranger. In Christ, everyone is someone. We…

Bulletin 6 – 13 July 2019

Jesus invites each of us to take part in His work – to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Our mission is to bring the peace of Christ to all we meet. All that is required is our honest effort to allow the goodness of God to shine in our lives. In an age where many…

Bulletin 29 Jun – 6 Jul

The Qualities of Discipleship are seen in today’s Gospel. In the midst of our work, Jesus calls us to come and serve. It’s an on-going challenge that requires daily choices which are not always easy to make. It may involve a serious conflict of loyalty or it may be a request for companionship. We welcome the call but we quibble…

Bulletin 22 – 29 June

The feast of the Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ reminds us that Jesus is really present in the Eucharist. This feast also relates to the community that assembles to celebrate the Eucharist. By living lives of service for others, we begin to appreciate what the Eucharist is all about. The Eucharist sends us out to touch the lives of others as the…
