Barn Dance

Permalink
The Social Committee did a great job yesterday: the Barn Dance at Northill Village Hall was great fun, with a very good caller and band and great company. Thanks to everyone.

Sorry about my very bright light; it was my first outing with it and I'll be more careful next time . . .

My Dear Brothers & Sisters,

We are familiar with the parable of the Prodigal Son. The word ‘Prodigal’ is not in common usage nowadays, but means ‘wasteful’. Some people call the parable of the Prodigal Son; the parable of the prodigal father.

— the Father who wastes his love upon each and every one of us.

“Think of the love that God lavishes on us, by letting us be called his children” 1 John. What a lovely God, what a lovely Father…. Oh when will we really believe; when will we have the courage to believe. “Cast your burdens on the Lord and He will support you.” 1 Peter.

Day of Prayer for peace in Syria

Permalink

Join us in praying and fasting for Syria.

Pope Francis has called on all the faithful worldwide to join in a day of prayer and fasting on the 7th September, for peace in Syria and the Middle East. However the information came out too late for St Peter's Parish, Biggleswade, to respond so we've deferred it to Saturday 14th where Mass will be celebrated at 11:00am followed by exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Come and join us and show your solidarity with those suffering from this awful conflict.


Prayer for peace in Syria

O God of peace, who are peace itself
and whom a spirit of discord cannot grasp,
nor a violent mind receive,
grant that those who are one in heart
may persevere in what is good
and that those in conflict
may forget evil and so be healed.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

St John Damascene, pray for us.
The Pope said:
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to express my closeness in prayer and solidarity with all the victims of this conflict, with all those who suffer, especially children, and I invite you to keep alive the hope of peace.”

If you can't make it then please join us at home and be in solidarity with the people of Syria. Say this prayer and share with family, friends and your local community.

My Dear Brothers & Sisters,

The Ten Commandments tell us that we should have no other gods in our lives except the Lord our God. These gods (with a small ‘g’) are all those things we depend on for our security. Often the gods in our lives that displace God are possessions…but they can be and often are, relationships.

We can elevate any relationship to the level of a god; we can elevate any possession to the level of an idol. Unless we worship God, who reveals Himself perfectly in Jesus Christ, with our whole heart, we will certainly be worshipping possessions, relationships and all manner of other idols. Why sell yourself short?

Have a good week!
Fr. Richard
