Prayer for Education Sunday

 

Gather us in from north, south, east and west, from city, town and village.

Gather us together, in your name, as your church, to praise your Holy name.

Let us know your reassurance and the promise of forgiveness, so we can start afresh, this new term

Gather us, like threads, from all walks of life, from schools, colleges and universities; from homes and workplaces; from places of transition and refuge.

Let us be woven together, in your name, to create a haven of hope and wonder for all; to make a rich and diverse tapestry of love and life in all its fullness, which reflects your Holy image.

Gather us and strengthen us to serve in the world; to reform all that is unjust; to reshape and cherish the planet, to nurture the earth, as you intend.

Gather us and empower us, living God, to share the Good News of your grace and mercy.

In the name of Jesus, our friend and teacher.

Amen.

 St. Irenaeus.

 Sea Sunday Prayer

 

Dear God, watch over the sea for our seafarers;

 That they may safely guarded be.

Help them each lonely hour to bear,

 As I would Lord if I was there.

When they are sleeping watch them then,

 That fear may not their dreams offend.

Be ever near them throughout the day.

Let none, but goodness come their way.

Sweet faithful Lord who waits for me,

Beyond the wide and spacious sea.

Be merciful, O God, I pray, take care of them at sea.

Its teams of chaplains and ship visitors in ports around the country provide practical help and pastoral care to seafarers, who are often thousands of miles away from their families back home.

 

And so, next week is Sea Sunday, when the Church prays for all those  who live and work at sea. There will be a second collection for Apostleship of the Sea, the official maritime welfare agency of the Catholic Church.

It provides practical and spiritual support to seafarers visiting our ports.

As it is dependent on voluntary donations, please give generously.

Heavenly Father, the beauty and dignity

of human life was the crowning of your creation.

You further ennobled that life when your Son

became one with us in his incarnation.

Help us to realize the sacredness of human life

and to respect it from the moment of conception

until the last moment at death.

Give us courage to speak with truth and love

 and with conviction in defence of life.

 Help us to extend the gentle hand of mercy

 and forgiveness to those who do not reverence

 your gift of life.

To all, grant pardon for the times we have

failed to be grateful for your precious gift

of life or to respect it in others.

We ask this in Jesus' Name.
Amen.

Pentecost Sunday

 

The gift of peace was

the risen Christ’s blessing

to the Apostles.

 

The gift of peace is something we pray for most

for those living with illnesses

of the body or mind.

 

The gift of peace is

an occasional glimpse of the joy

of heaven to help us

on this earthly journey.

 

Come Holy Spirit!

 

 

Diocesan Launch

The feast of Pentecost sees the ‘launch’ of the 18 new partnerships across our Diocese. A ‘Pointing the Way’ leaflet is being provided for every parishioner - setting out where our journey together over the past two and a half years has taken us and how we move into implementation. A Prayer for Our New Partnership is included as a focus for a reflection in each parish over Pentecost weekend.

The Ascension of the Lord

We go to heaven to the extent that we go to Jesus Christ and enter into him. Heaven is a person: Jesus himself is what we call ‘heaven’. 

Pope Benedict XV1.

 

Ascension Day

 

St. Augustine wrote: “You will cease to be unspiritual

if this human form, the body of Jesus,

is taken from before your eyes,

so that the form of God may

 be grafted instead upon your hearts.

Unless this human form is taken away,

you will be wholly unable to

think of anything divine.”

 

By embracing the Ascension

we let go of all that is beneath us.

Thanks to the fact that Christ is taken up into heaven,

we remain taken up in his love.

The raised hands of the priest at Mass

mirror those of Christ, who extends to us the divinity

 to which he ascends.

 

 

 

 

 

 

N.B. Next Sunday the Feast of Pentecost we cease to be a parish and become a Partnership.
