THE CHURCH'S BRIDEGROOM

The Church rejoices in her Bridegroom who will cherish her
and will lavish upon her the many gifts of his Spirit,
and transform her into a new creation
as he transformed water into wine.

My Dear Friends,

This Sunday is peace Sunday, an opportunity for us to reflect on the Holy Father's message for World Peace Day. His theme this year is: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”

He goes on to say: "Jesus' tells us that peace is both a gift and the fruit of human effort, an ethics of fellowship and sharing which involves complete commitment. It is peace with God through a life lived according to his will. It entails the building up of a coexistence based on truth, freedom, love and justice and above all on recognising that we are, in God, one human family.

Peace is not just a dream; and is possible, since every man and woman has been created in the image of God and is called to grow and contribute to the building of a new world. The peacemaker, according to Jesus' beatitude, is one who always seeks the good of the other. With this prayer I express my hope that all will be true peacemakers, so that humankind may grow in fraternal harmony, prosperity and peace."

The full text may be read on line at the Pax Christi web site.

Finally two things: please do not tamper with the heating, if you are to warm (unlikely I suspect!) please move to sit elsewhere and please note that the parish web address has changed. The correct link can be found at the top of this page.

God Bless.
