Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Feast of St. Peter & Paul reminds us of our allegiance and loyalty to the Pope as the first among equals of the bishops of the Roman Catholic Church. We may sometimes feel the restraining hand of Rome is being restrictive…as we do with anyone set up as our guide; but it is a small price to pay for unity and the fulfilment of our Mission.

Yours,
Fr. Richard

It has been a great pleasure for all concerned with the preparation of the children for First Holy Communion this year. We congratulate them on this stage of their journey of faith. It is hard to believe that God is so committed to our welfare that He should send us His Son. It is even harder to believe in the real presence of Jesus in the bread and wine. In fact, after the consecration we call the gifts no longer bread and wine, but the Body and Blood of Christ. When we receive the Body and Blood of Christ Jesus is inviting us to become part of His journey. When we say AMEN, we say yes to the real presence, and yes to continuing our journey of faith. It is not always easy, and life never is, but it is fruitful. May the good work that God has begun in us be brought to completion. Amen.
Yours,
Fr. Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Trinity Sunday is when we celebrate the Revelation that God is one, and yet three persons. The most important lesson for us is that the human race is one, and yet manifests itself in many persons. Fullness of being for God is in the perfect relationships the three persons have with each other. For us our perfection comes when we allow God to help us achieve unity with one another in Christ. We are made for one another…after all we were made in the image and likeness of God.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

In the western world a gift is something we give to another to show our esteem or delight in a person. The recipient if he or she has no use of it, graciously receives the gift, but as often as not they will not use it. When God gives us gifts it is a measure of His esteem or delight in us, but will always be given so that we can use it to benefit others. This week you will see in church banners in the sanctuary area naming the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit – and on the windows the twelve fruits of the Holy Spirit – i.e. what is produced when we use the gifts. In the church nothing is given to you just for yourself. As human beings we are part of a whole mankind. As Christians we are part of the Body of Christ. The Spirit is given so that we may live no longer for ourselves but for Him….

Fr. Richard
