Letter from Father Richard
In his sermon last Sunday our Deacon John Lang, spoke of our ability to be imprisoned by our own expectations. All of us would like to write the script of our own future.
John the Baptist’s reality didn’t live up to his expectation. Joseph’s expectations didn’t tally with his reality. What made them Saints is that they willingly gave over their pens to God so that He could script their present and their future.
After the first Band Aid concert, Bob Geldoff said: Is that it? There was a certain deflation after so much work and activity.
If you want to maintain a certain “edge” to your life; hand over the pen, let God write the future; seize the day:
Rejoice in the Lord – again I say rejoice.
