Jesus's promise

Part of today's reading, Luke 6:36 – 38 is a wonderful passage.  It's amazing to think of Jesus saying this all those years ago.  To do with how the Father will treat you if you treat others well,

6:38 "Give, and it will be given to you: A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap. For the measure you use will be the measure you receive.”


St Patrick's Day

Today, Thursday, is St Patrick's day. He was kidnapped by pirates and taken to Ireland where he spent 6 years of hard labour. Later, when back in England, he heard a call to return to Ireland and he did so as a priest – to bring people to Christ.

In the Confession and Letter to Coroticus, his intimate relationship with his Lord and Saviour is revealed.
‘Keep me as the apple of your eye;
Hide me in the shadow of your
I sing as I arise today!
I call on my Creator’s might;
The will of God to be my guide,
The eye of God to be my sight,
The word of God to be my speech,
The hand of God to be my stay,
The shield of God to be my strength,
The path of God to be my way.’
(St Patrick)

Tsunami and nuclear worries

I reckon that there are a load of people in Japan who need our prayers; just a thought . . .


Ash Wednesday

Today is Ash Wednesday. We have until Easter Sunday, on 24 April, to do our spiritual "spring cleaning". May each of us be able to pray and improve during this wonderful period of repentance and renewal. May we all make contact with God and experience his mercy.
