The holiday season is upon us once more. It can be difficult to tear ourselves away from the routine, the familiar. It can be difficult to ‘waste time’.

Still; the Sabbath, holy days – holidays are all designed to detach ourselves from the everyday, the mundane, to enable us to view life in a new way, perhaps even to review what we are about in general.

As a result, our life choices will change; we will want things that are eternal, not passing.

Have a good week.

Jesus envisages that His followers will pray. They will pray that they may be respectful to God; that they will depend on Him for their daily needs, and that they will endeavour to forgive anyone who has sinned against them.

This pattern was established in the OUR FATHER. We are also encouraged to INVITE God into the minutiae of our lives.

Ask and you shall receive…. .

Through Jesus Christ may you enjoy the friendship of God.

Where would the world be, without its worriers and fretters? I suspect nothing much would get done.

However, to be consumed by worry and fret is so destructive. You can forget why you really want to do something. Jesus commends Mary for her attentions to Him.

The gospel is best summed up by those lines in the hymn – Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and these other things will be given unto thee.

Let us pray for one another.

OREMUS PRO INVICEM

Who does not love the parable of The Good Samaritan? It is especially lovely when the Good Samaritan may be taken as a figure of Jesus come to save poor battered fallen man.

When you think about the TUMULTUOUS times we are living in – the seeming falling apart of our political parties – the fragility of mankind becomes so apparent.

But we are not surprised; we do not put our hope in poor deluded mankind, but rather in our loving God who sent His son to redeem the world.

As the centre falls apart, may you take the opportunity to place all your hope in God.

Yours,

Fr. Richard
