Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We would all like to live in a perfect world wouldn’t we? The trouble is, our perfect world probably wouldn’t coincide with very many others perfect world.

If only we could agree to live by the same principles…that would be nice as well. However, we don’t live in an agreeable world. The Christian is none the less called to make a difference. Listening to the voice of the Master (Jesus) we are called to complete His work on earth; proclaiming by our lives, the good news of Jesus Christ. Do not be disturbed if you are different to others, but be very afraid if you live your lives as though Jesus was not a significant presence.

Have a good week,
Yours,
Fr. Richard

Celebrating the Feast of Saint Benedict

Permalink


11th July is the Feast of Saint Benedict
and another opportunity for getting together after the 9.30am Mass.  
Father Richard cut the cake, which was decorated with a medieval image of Saint Benedict - quite a remarkable achievement by Gunns Bakery.

Do visit the Meeting Room when you are next in church, as there is an exhibition of text and images related to the life and works of the saint.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I wonder how many of us fully read the instructions of the latest gadget we have purchased? How many of us have mastered our TV’s, computers etc. I guess it’s not many. We may say we will learn as we go along; when in reality we are just idle. How many of us hear the word of God and heed it? As few, I suspect, as read the instruction manual to their latest gadget. And yet if we would let God make a difference in our lives, we must give Him time. We must withdraw a while to listen to His voice, give Him time to bless us and to heal us.

Have a good week,

Yours,
Fr. Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We are a strange people. Sometimes we just love to carry burdens that are not ours; we love to be distressed unnecessarily; we love playing the martyr or the victim. Burdens at least give in the sense that we exist. What would it be like to cast our burdens on the Lord; what would it be like to let Him do the worrying for us? What would it be like to come to the Lord “all you who are over burdened” that the Lord may give you rest? Dare you have confidence in God? Dare you cast all your burdens on the Lord that He may support you? Dare you? I dare you!
Yours,
Fr. Richard
