A message from Fr John

Posted on: 14/05/2020

Dear Friends
 
What a lovely crisp and bright morning.
 
Another story from the mission magazines - this time it’s from ehe Columban missionaries
 
There was once a prayerful woman who claimed to have had a vision of Christ. So she went to see the bishop. ‘Did you talk to him?’ he asked. 
‘Yes,’ she replied, ‘I did.’ 
‘Well,’ said the bishop, ’the next time he appears to you ask him what was the bishop’s greatest sin before he became a bishop’. 
About three months later she returned. ‘Did you see the Lord again?’ 
‘Yes.’
‘Did you ask him the question about my sin?’
‘Yes. I did.’
‘And what did he say?’
She smiled and answered, ’The Lord said, “I don’t remember any more”’.
 
Maybe during this time of lockdown we too might learn to forget any hurts or grievances and simply learn again to count our blessings.
Please pray for all those who are sick
Evelyn, Winnie C., Mary Paul, Adela, Sr Kevina, Janet

And for all those who have died:
Fr Peter, Roy, Alf, Malcom, Elsie, Matthew, Stella, Chris, Kenneth, Carol Ann, Ingeburg, Winnie Y., Patricia M., Eileen Maureen, Joan, Frank, Robert, Lynda, Cecilia, Lourdes, John, Michael, Eileen, Dale, Michael, Graham, Maria, Andrew, Gladys, Patrick & Pauline
Let us remember too all those who mourn them.
Day of Prayer, Fasting and Works of Charity
Pope Francis has called on believers from all religions to spiritually unite themselves in a Day of prayer, fasting and works of charity today, May 14th. 
While the day will not feature any public gatherings of worship, it is an opportunity for individuals to spiritually unite for a moment of reflection, hope and faith.
St Joseph guardian of families, pray for us - especially for the vulnerable
 
Every blessing
 
Fr John
