We can still……

· Follow Mass online through the Archdiocese if you can 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"

FOOD & DRINK FOR THE JOURNEY

Sometimes we need to be reminded of ‘Kingdom Living’! We can often find ourselves worrying about the details of belief, that we may forget that more than anything else we are called to love God and our neighbour. If we love and follow the Lord with all our hearts then the rest will follow naturally. Today’s Gospel has a familiar theme…. the disciple’s inability to understand the nature of greatness in the Kingdom of God! We see two of Jesus' disciples boldly asking Him to promote them to first place in his kingdom. Once again Jesus did the unthinkable – he reversed the order of true greatness and glory! Jesus defines glory very differently than the world does. Real glory consists in being deep in compassion, forgiveness, and graciousness, serving one another in love, especially when we help those who cannot give anything in return.  The true measure of greatness is what we give, not what we have.  The more we serve, the more we are aware of God’s presence. Praise Him!
