Bulletin 23 – 30 Mar 2019

Lent moves us to produce the fruits of good living. Is love evident in our treatment of others? Reaching out to others in need demands getting out of ourselves and putting aside our selfish ways. Lent is an opportunity to take a hard look at our lives and to ask how we stand before God now. The challenge is to prepare our…

Bulletin 16 – 23 Mar 2019

The Transfiguration speaks of the gradual process of change that takes place in our lives when we, like the apostles, accompany Jesus to Calvary. We become so taken up with the daily concerns of living that we often lose sight of the end to which we have been called. Lent gives us a conducive spiritual environment – through prayer,…

Bulletin 9 – 16 Mar 2019

Lent is the season to get back to basics, to replenish the soil in which our Christian faith grows. Pampered by creature comforts, we fall into the trap of thinking that material things will bring happiness. Instead, so often they turn out to be false escapes that lead to unhappiness and frustration. Lent is a time of quiet…

Bulletin 2 – 9 Mar 2019

Jesus gives some practical points on Christian living. Our words and conversation are a true indication of our spiritual health. When we open our lips, we should refrain from hurting our neighbour. We must search as carefully for our own faults as we do for the faults of others, and concentrate on removing those flaws in…

Bulletin 23 Feb – 2 Mar 2019

Repaying Wrong with Right We live the gospel of forgiveness by refusing hatred or revenge for our enemies. Hatred is often the result of ignorance or misunderstanding. Anger and bitterness are moral cancers, and set us up for disaster. We have long memories for injuries inflicted and a frightening capacity for nursing old wounds – which lead us to misery. Jesus…

Luke draws a contrast between the blessed (those who realise the need for God) and the cursed (those who believe they are self-sufficient). The Beatitudes explain how to live in order to attain everlasting happiness. Being excluded or insulted happens to us, especially due to our faith in Jesus. Such insult is proof that our lives truly belong to God. If we take Jesus seriously, we…

Bulletin 9 – 16 Feb 2019

WHAT HAPPENED to Peter is what happens to us. When we recognise our own weaknesses, Christ enriches us so that we could offer ourselves to God, faults and all. Discovering our spiritual poverty opens us to what God is offering. God speaks to us in the humdrum parts of our daily lives. We are more…

OUR PROPHETIC role continues we are called to witness to Christ, not just with words, but with their lives. Our baptismal mission is to witness to His values. Every Christian is by nature an apostle to whom God has entrusted other people. We are to take a stand with Christ – against friend and foe,…

Bulletin 26 Jan – 2 Feb 2019

JESUS DECLARES the Lord’s year of favour in today’s Gospel. There are many ways we can make these words of Christ – about bringing good news to the poor, liberty to captives and sight to the blind – our very own and have them fulfilled. We can be healers in times of trouble so that…

Bulletin 19 – 26 Jan 2019

CHRIST CAME to change people and to make all things new. He came to change us – just as He changed water into wine. His presence among us is an invitation to change our ways and a call to a new way of life. Wherever Jesus is, life is always changed for the better. The…
