Newsletter 25th July 2021
As we listen to the words of the Lord in the Scriptures, we are all reminded of the most wonderful love of God which He has shown us by sharing with us His blessings and graces, His kindness and providence by the sharing of food and sustenance for His people, as highlighted in our Scripture readings this Sunday. The Lord also wants to unite His people through the same breaking and sharing of the bread that is in essence, at the centre of our Christian faith.
Let us all remember what St. Paul mentioned in his Epistle to the Ephesians, part of which is our second reading this Sunday, that we all have to strive for unity of the Church, through the Holy Spirit, and nurture a spirit of charity and love, of generosity and kindness towards one another, that we share this blessing and grace of God we have received with each other. We must remind ourselves of the need to build a truly united and harmonious community of the faithful and Church, that we do not only love the Lord with all of our might and strength, but also our fellow brethren, as part of the same Body of Christ, the Church of God.
On Thursday we will be joined at Mass by Father Jonathan as he prepares to take some holiday before his move to the parish at the end of August. It would be great to offer him a warm welcome by as many of his future Parishioners as possible.
May the Lord be with us all, and may He empower each and every one of us to live together as one united Church, one united community of the faithful.
