A message from Fr John

Posted on: 15/05/2020

Dear Friends
Good morning - a slight change in the weather but when will the rain come
Another little story from the Columban Missionaries
"There was a black South African woman running an orphanage for children whose parents had died of HIV/AIDS. She was asked by an interviewer, 'What would you like to leave behind as your legacy when you die?’
She replied, ‘When I meet my maker I want to be empty-handed because I want to have used every gift that God has given me. When I die I want to leave nothing behind except a small footprint that might help others to find a way.’
The writer adds, ‘May we be large in our loving, generous in our service and ready to tread lightly the earth, our ‘small footprint’ a sign of loving reverence for all his people and for all his creation’. "
Amen Amen Amen
Maybe you can phone a neighbour or family member today and remind them that they too are a gift from God.
Please remember all of our family, friends and parishioners who are on the frontline
Ian, Joseph, Lisa, Patrick, Chris, Catherine, Anne, Terry, Mark, Theo, Clare, Richard, Anthony, Jane, James, Mary, Francis, Ruth, Andrew
Please pray for all our teachers who must care for our children these days and face increasing challenges.
Remember too Maria Scott whose funeral we will celebrate today
St Joseph, mainstay of families, pray for us
Every blessing
Fr John
