The Gospel of (Mark 4:26-34) the 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time beholds two parables. The first refers to sowing and fruit bearing, the second illustrates the growth of the God’s kingdom from something hidden and minute to something fully visible. The mustard plant presents a contrast between the smallness of the present kingdom and the relative largeness of it in its fullness. Jesus chooses a common plant to describe how the kingdom could be working its way into something amazingly large from the tiniest whisper of a beginning. At that time, together both parables would be mystifying to some but for those who followed Jesus were given further insight, these were represented by the birds taking shade in the shrub and were in fact the Disciples; the hungry listeners.

Last weekend Father Martin conducted both Masses on Sunday he was here to help Fr.Eamon who unfortunately is poorly again, please pray for his recovery.

The Market Stall was a wonderful success and raised £190; Thank you to all who helped with baking and on the day.

St. Peter’s Catholic Church. Biggleswade.
Last Sunday celebrated the feast of Corpus Christi. The festival of Corpus Christi celebrates the Eucharist as the body of Christ. The name 'Corpus Christi' is Latin for 'the body of Christ'. This jubilant festival is celebrated to proclaim the truth of the transubstantiation of bread and wine into the actual body and blood of Christ during Mass. 1.The human person cannot live without the experience of divine love and human love.  The human person cannot live without the experience of divine intimacy and human intimacy.  The human person cannot live without communion.  Man becomes fully realized in communion because he is created for communion by a God who is the most perfect communion (1.From the Vatican website).

Sixteen children took their First Holy Communion on Saturday 9th June. The church was packed with their families, friends and parishioners to celebrate with the children in receiving the Holy Sacrament. Please pray for them and the Catechists who gave their time freely for several months to ensure the children were fully prepared for this wonderful day and for those who worked extremely hard to ensure that everyone enjoyed refreshments thereafter.

St.Peter’s Catholic Church, Biggleswade.Last Sunday was Trinity
Sunday,it is celebrated a week after Pentecost Sunday also known as
Holy Trinity Sunday and is one of the central mysteries of our faith.
We can never fully understand the mystery of the Trinity, but we can
sum it up in the following formula: God is three Persons in one. The
three Persons of God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—are all equally God,
and They cannot be divided. We do believe in one God, just as we say
in the Creed, but He is three persons.


Saturday 9th June St Peters Market Stall, scrumptious home-made cakes
for sale. 


Saturday 16th June Carmel in Bedfordshire - Visit to
Monastery of Discalced Carmelite Nuns in Ware, Hertfordshire. To
celebrate Mass, lunch and a talk by the Nuns, car share; 9.30am start.


Friday 22nd June, 7.30pm Royal Race Night- Fun night with Wine
Tasting, Ladies Fancy Hat & Gents Waistcoat competitions.

St.Peter’s Catholic Church, Biggleswade.
Pentecost Sunday is one of the most ancient feasts of the Church, after Easter Sunday, Christmas is the second-greatest feast in the Christian liturgical calendar, but Pentecost Sunday is not far behind. For that reason, it is often called the "the birthday of the Church”. Like Easter Sunday Pentecost is a moveable date but the earliest possible date for Pentecost Sunday is May 10; the latest is June 13. Pentecost is 50 days after Easter and 10 days after the Ascension of Our Lord, and marks the descent of the Holy Spirit/Ghost on the apostles. The Apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary spent nine days in prayer between The Ascension of Our Lord and Pentecostal Sunday waiting for the fulfilment of Christ's promise to send His Spirit. This was the origin of the Novena, or nine-day prayer, to ask God the Father to send the Holy Spirit and to prepare us to receive the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit which are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude (or courage), knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. On this day St. Peter, the first pope, was already the leader and spokesman for the Apostles.

The Rio Connection - Our World - Our Future

Permalink
What kind of future would you like to see? If you care about poverty, water and climate change, then take action now before world leaders meet at the Rio+20 summit in June.

This is our chance to let our elected representatives know that poverty and climate change are still vitally important - and to encourage them to take a lead in creating a greener, fairer economy that benefits all of God's people, for all time. 

Ask your MP to support the Rio declaration >

We are called as Christians to love our neighbours but what can we do?  Do not be downhearted everyone can make a difference... 
See what has happened since that last 1992 Rio Summit click on the video below...
