Bulletin 14 – 21 Sep 2019

The reaction of someone who loses something precious represents God’s response to us who are “lost” through sin. It reminds us that we are in a family relationship with God and when we are lost, He doesn’t wait for our return but actively seeks us out. God welcomes His wayward children home and treats us as if we…

Bulletin 7 – 14 Sep 2019

The demand of discipleship is to “let go and let God.” We are called to be disciples in our family, in our work place, and in our dealings with neighbours and the community. The journey to God is so valuable that it is worth stripping our lifestyles to the bare essentials – discipleship overcomes the need to acquire possessions. When the struggle becomes…

Bulletin 31 Aug – 7 Sep 2019

TODAY’S GOSPEL WARNS us against all forms of pride and self-glorification. Humility enables us to see ourselves as God sees us. In humility, we recognize our role as custodians of Earth, Our Common Home. “Being human should move people to care for the environment. Christians must realize that their responsibility within creation, and their duty…

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…
