St.Peters Catholic Church Station RoadBiggleswade Last Sunday’s gospel Mark 10:35-45 calls for great reflection on why we aspire and need for respect and admiration? Two of the disciples James and John wanted to sit on either side of Jesus in His Kingdom so that those who saw them would be in awe by the influence they had. But Jesus believed that these positions were not his to give, as this decision belonged to God. Jesus’ viewpoint was that being self-centred or for any reason for us to be perceived as powerful amounts to nothing and was not important. What was important to Jesus was to humbly follow the will of God; it was this that leads Jesus to sacrifice his own life on the cross. To feel so powerful leads to others feeling inadequate and powerless which was the opposite of what Jesus taught. Last week we said good-bye to Fr.Jude who has been our priest for the past weeks. Our grateful thanks and prayers travel with him to his new Parish in Bedgrove Buckinghamshire. We are please to announce the arrival of our new Parish Priest Fr. Richard Moroney from Farnham Royal, Buckinghamshire. Please join us at Mass & pray this weekend to welcome and support him through this transition.
