TWENTY FOURTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR (A)

 

Forgive from your heart.

Christ is the perfect example of

forgiveness.  He died for us when

we were still his enemies by sin and

through his death we are brought to life.

His life and death have an influence on all

of us.  Now we must forgive each other as

Christ forgives us since we ask God to

forgive us our trespasses as we

forgive those who trespass against us.

  

Dear Friends,

 When we are hurt by someone, we may need a little time to take stock of our feelings, but ultimately it is most helpful to take a position of humility - a position that refuses to judge, refuses to adopt a self-righteous attitude, and refuses to hold on to a grudge.

 A grudge is like a toxic waste; it only hurts the one who holds it.

 So how many times should we forgive the person who wrongs us?  When our Lord Jesus says seventy-seven times seven, what he really means is to stop counting.  Forgive as many times as it takes.

 The refusal to forgive is itself a sin that needs forgiveness.  When we refuse to forgive, we cut ourselves off from God’s forgiveness.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Now that we have resumed our Masses, it is good to see familiar faces again in the Churches although Sunday Mass obligation is still suspended.

 What makes celebrating Mass with the public more enjoyable is hearing a response.  Since the lockdown I have been celebrating Masses privately and the experience was very weird without a response from the congregation.

 I am also glad that we are resuming infant and toddler Baptisms.  We have the following Baptisms throughout the summer months.

            Jacob Elder - 26th July

            Nazaria Quaye – 16th August

Delilah Judd – 23rd August

            Alice Suggett – 30th August

Dominic Bolog - 30th August

            Grace Clark – 27th September

            Cameron Johnston – 11th October

            Drew Henry – 18th October

            Emily Birtwistle – 25th October

Please continue to book for the weekend Masses that you wish to attend.

 I encourage and advise you to read very carefully all the guidelines for Celebration of Mass and the Bishops letter which can be found on the Parish websites under Covid-19 News.  Please visit our Booking for Mass page in order to book a place for Mass.

STAY ALERT    >    CONTROL THE VIRUS    >     SAVE LIVES
