Bulletin 20-27 April 2019

Easter is the turning point to live in an entirely new way that is beyond the limitations of this world. We are challenged to become part of a new creation, and to see God’s plan in the ordinary events surrounding us. The question we must face: Have we arisen to new life with Christ, or are there boulders weighing us…

Bulletin 13 – 21 Apr 2019

During Holy Week, Jesus wants the work of His Cross to touch our lives, to break our sinful ways so that we may be changed and get closer to God. This Week, we are confronted with the Cross – without which we cannot become His disciples. It gives us an opportunity to ponder: What is the cross I am taking up daily or refusing…

Bulletin 6 – 13 April 2019

God is always ready to forgive. We focus on the sinful woman because before God we all stand silent in our sinfulness. The good news is that what Jesus does for her He will do for us. Lent is an invitation to take a close look at our lives, acknowledge our weaknesses and start anew with God. Jesus’ offer of forgiveness and compassion…

Bulletin 30 Mar – 6 Apr 2019

THE PRODIGAL SON helps us to see ourselves in the elder and younger sons. We have been wandering, disobedient and selfish children who hold grudges and are unwilling to forgive others. But our Father is always ready to welcome us – even after our most stupid mistakes and sins. The Gospel tells us what coming…

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…

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…
