We can still……

· If you don’t feel able to come to Mass  in person you can follow Mass online through the Archdiocese here

· Pray the Rosary in your homes


As these difficult and challenging times continue, we still walk in His Light together, nourished by His mighty Word and His Presence that whispers to our souls "remain in my love"....."do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid"....."Trust me"


The challenge in the Word of God today is ‘to change’. Before any real change can take place in our spiritual development, we have to come to the point of recognising where we are, and wanting it to be better. We have to straighten whatever crooked paths we’ve been walking. All of us can carry clutter that needs sorting and the Word of God today helps to nudge us into urgent action, recognising that if we really want to change, we have many opportunities to do so!  God comes and knocks at the door of our hearts all the time, nudging us to change. As John the Baptist told the people in his day, so he tells us today. He makes the same call to us. Either repent and turn more to the Lord or walk away and follow other paths. The choice belongs to us. We can view repentance in two ways. Looking backwards it can be a question of making up for what has been done in the past. Looking forwards it can be getting the matter sorted out and making sure that, as far as possible we don’t make the same mistakes in the future. When we were baptised we received the gift of the Holy Spirit, and when we were confirmed we became more aware that He is our helper and Guide…….this is our greatest gift!  Be assured as St Paul says.... the one who began this good work in you will complete it! Praise Him!
