Bulletin 16 – 23 Feb 2019

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…

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 5 – 12 Jan 2019

‘Epiphany’ comes from the Greek word epiphaneia, which means ‘manifestation’. The story of the Magi is so colourful we may fail to see its deeper meaning. The wise men represent all of us. Their journey reflects our search for purpose and meaning in life which is not possible unless we are guided by faith which enables us to see beyond appearances. God…

FROM ANTIQUITY, Mary has been called Theotokos, or ‘God-Bearer’ (Mother of God). In 431 AD, the Church Council of Ephesus declared that the holy virgin Mary is the Theotokos (for she gave birth to the Word of God become flesh by birth) to reaffirm the central truth of what occurred in the Incarnation of Jesus…

During this season, we will hear 2 messages. One message and set of values will come to us from the media and shops: we must move faster, stay busy, and spend more money on those ‘must have’ presents so that we will have the ‘perfect’ Christmas, as if such a thing exists. We will be told…
