Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Good Shepherd Sunday is traditionally a day when we pray for vocations to the Priesthood and religious life. We are not praying for people to become religious stereotypes but people so inspired by God as to want to serve Him in a particular way. All shepherds have to become masters of themselves before they can be of use to others.

Let us pray that we may all continue to grow to maturity in Christ, that our very being may be a beacon to others.

Fr. Richard

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The gospel today is a reminder that it takes some doing to get used to the fact that Jesus is alive: He is risen from the dead. Sensibility and discernment of spirits is an art, acquired as all art, through trial and error and frequent practice. To perfect an art requires perseverance. Long may the adventure of living with the Risen Christ continue to inspire and strengthen you.

Father Richard's Anniversary Mass

Permalink
Father Richard's Anniversary Mass went wonderfully, helped in no small part by Bishop Peter's presence to bless the proceedings and to tell us a bit about our Parish Priest :-)

Here are a few photos from the event. Let me know if you want the image file for any other use.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

When we are children and have done something wrong, we are often frightened to own up to it because of being told off. In our relationship with God we project the same kind of attitude….That is what has changed with the Risen Christ. He says ‘Peace be with you’. You are at one with the Father. Do not be afraid…confessing your sins will not lead to a telling off, but a helping hand. Be assured.

Peace be with you,

Fr. Richard

Churches Together on Good Friday

Permalink
The Churches Together in Biggleswade Walk of Witness was very well attended. Participants took up about 200yds along the pavement as the walked from the Baptist Church on London Road to the square in the centre of Biggleswade. Once there, Phil Campion, leader of the Baptist Church, gave a stirring talk on the "Funeral March to Joy". I felt inspired.
