Dear Brothers & Sisters,

HOSPITALITY in our time is an INDUSTRY. It has always been in every society an attitude. We welcome people into our homes, we welcome people into our churches, we try to make room for others in our hearts. Even the most closed heart breaks open when people fall in love. May this Christmas be a time for broke-open hearts, not broken hearts; for tolerance, mercy and compassionate love.

Yours

Fr. Richard

Dear Brothers & Sisters

In all penitential seasons there is a time for relaxation. Gaudete Sunday, the Third Sunday of Advent is one of such period of enjoyment and relaxation. Rejoice, we are told, for our salvation is near at hand. With this and the proclamation of the Year of Mercy we have much to rejoice about. Jubilees are always about debts forgiven and new beginnings.

Rejoice, your salvation is near at hand.

Fr. Richard

Dear Brothers & Sisters

Christians are people formed by the Eucharistic celebration. The sacrifice of the Mass is the high point of our liturgical endeavour. The theme of the last supper is obviously a theme that features hospitality. Jesus is our host – we are His
guests. God wishes to be hospitable to us. The theme of today’s gospel – “Prepare a way for the Lord’ is important, in that we have to learn to be hospitable to God. The original Christmas was a time when He came to His own and they knew Him not. Let us reverse that original omission. Let us individually and as a community, … Prepare a way for the Lord … Let us learn to be hospitable to Him.

Fr. Richard
