Dear Brothers and Sisters,

What a beautiful gospel this week. The disciples are on their way to Emmaus. It is a gospel so relevant to the confused, the directionless, those feeling undermined.

At some time In our lives and probably many, we have felt as though the carpet has been pulled from under our feet. The Emmaus Movement of helping others by walking beside them has a presence here in Bedfordshire.

May its spirit be present in our families, our church communities and our places of work and recreation.

Have a good week!

Fr. Richard

The Cross of Christ the Measure of the World – John Henry Newman

I. It is the death of the Eternal Word, of God made flesh, which is our great lesson how to think and how to speak of this world. His Cross has put its due value upon everything which we see, upon all fortunes, all advantages, all ranks, all dignities, all pleasures, upon the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.

It has set a price upon the excitements, the rivalries, the hopes, the fears, the desires, the efforts, the triumphs of mortal man. It has given a meaning to the various shifting courses, the trials, the temptations, the sufferings of his earthly state. It has brought together and made consistent all that seemed discordant and aimless.

It has taught us how to live, how to use this world, what to expect, what to desire, what to hope.

It is the tone into which all the strains of this world's music are ultimately to be resolved.

J. H. Newman, Parochial and Plain Sermons, vol. vi., p. 83.
