Sunday Reflection

Sunday reflection 18/09/2016

The harsh words of the first reading today can help to waken us up to the materialistic world we live in. We are encouraged to strive to be the best, to earn the most, own the biggest house or car. It’s not always easy. We want to get ahead, to better ourselves, but at least let’s not do so at a cost of others.
In May 2013 Pope Francis said: if investments in banks drop a little, it’s a tragedy! But if people are starving, if they have nothing to eat, if they are not healthy, it does not matter! This is our crisis today!
The church is on the side of the poor, as was Jesus in his life. Sometimes in our humanity, we need harsh words to waken us, so we recognize the poor and needy in our own neighborhood and throughout the world.

Welcome to our website. If it's your first visit we hope it gives you some idea of what our parish is like. If you want to know more then there's nothing like coming to meet us and you would be very welcome. In the meantime, have a good look around and get in touch if we can help in any way.
