Good morning - gosh it’s gone cooler.
This morning I would like to share with you a little thought from Pope Francis,
Rivers do not drink their own water;
Trees do not eat their own fruit;
The sun does not shine on itself
And flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves.
Living for others is a rule of nature.
We are all born to help each other.
No matter how difficult it is ….
Life is good when you are happy;
But much better when others are happy because of you.
We know hat to be so true, and it does not need huge efforts generally. A simple smile, a quick phone call, a wave across the garden, making space for someone on the pavement or in the shop, a courteous ‘thank you’ - and, best of all, when we know that someone cares and is praying for us.
Thank you for helping to make Walkden, Worsley and Little Hulton such a good place to be during these times - and for making Holy Trinity parish a centre of missionary discipleship.
Thank you for your support of the Food Bank, and of Cafod and Missio.
We continue to pray for those who are sick especially
Adela, Winnie, Sylvia, Joe, Susan, Irene, Audrey, janet, Paddy and Dennis
And for those who have died especially
Fr Peter, Michael, Roy, Alf, Malcolm, Elsie, Matthew, Anne, Stella, Chris, Kenneth, Carol Ann, Ingeburg, Winnie, Patricia, Eileen, Maureen, Joan, Frank, Robert, Lynda, Cecilia, Lourdes, Dale, John, Eileen, Michael, Graham, Maria, Andrew, Gladys, Ellen, Patrick, Pauline, Michael, Alice, Gordon, Mary William, Lynn, Elsie, Tom and Richard
Let us pray for all those who are currently protesting on the streets - may their voices be heard, justice given, and may their protests be peaceful.
St Joseph, model of open-hearted generosity, pray for us
