Some of The Latest News from Our Parish


Seeing your life through the lens of the gospels John 14:23-291

Jesus seeks to reassure his followers in the face of his imminent death. Although he will be leaving them, he promises them the gift of the Spirit. How have you been aware of the gift of the Spirit of God in your life? 2 Remember times of separation from a loved one through change of residence or other circumstances. How has the love between you been a support after the separation? 3 To his followers Jesus promises ‘we will come and make our home with them’. Our God is not a distant God but one who lives in us. What has helped you to be aware of the closeness of God to you? 4 ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.’ When you have been anxious, who have been the Jesus people for you who were able to calm your anxiety? How did they do this? For whom have you been able to be a calming influence? John Byrne OSA (Intercom)
