Peace Sunday – Migrants & Refugees

Lord Jesus, you were cast out and rejected so that we might be included. Lord have mercy.

Christ Jesus, friend of the sinner and the outcast.  Christ have mercy.

Lord Jesus, you call us to be seekers of the peace of your Father’s Kingdom.  Lord, have mercy.

In a world crying out for love but still filled with too much hatred and violence. Lord have mercy.

In a country that speaks of equality but often fails to live up to that promise.  Lord have mercy.

In our communities in which some people are considered worth less than others.  Lord have mercy.

In our churches where we often neglect Jesus’ teaching of compassion

and in our families when words or deeds hurt each other.

 Lord have mercy.

Pope John XXIII’s Christmas Prayer

 

O sweet Child of Bethlehem, grant that we may hare with

all our hearts in this profound mystery of Christmas.

Put into the hearts of men and women this peace for which

they sometimes seek so desperately and which you alone

can give to them.

Help them to know one another better, and to live as

brothers and sisters, children of the same Father.

Reveal to them also your beauty, holiness and purity.

Awaken in their hearts love and gratitude for your infinite

goodness.

Join them all together in your love.

And give us your heavenly peace.

Amen.

Jesus Was a Refugee

 

(Asylum Seekers collection next Sun. Unwanted Christmas toiletries  gifts  together with usual donations much appreciated).

 

The North East project helps over 400 asylum seekers by giving them a bag of essential weekly food items. Those refused leave to stay are also given £25 per month from voluntary donations. This is necessary because, once leave to stay is refused, they lose their homes and all Government funding. They effectively are destitute. The project has been running nearly sixteen years.

The aim is to welcome and care for people from all over the world who arrive on our doorstep seeking asylum.

We thank each parish for helping to carry on feeding those who are hungry, whether by food, or cash donations.

We look on these collections as our monthly miracle.  

J. Dowling Manager.

 

 

Wishing you A Holy and Peaceful Christmas

We thank you for this place in which we dwell,

Catholic Education

 

The Government is making a critical decision

 on whether to overturn the admissions cap

which prevents some schools from allowing all

Catholic pupils to attend. By her own admission,

the Secretary of State has said the rule has been

ineffective and adversely affects Catholic families.

By forcing Catholic schools to turn away

Catholic school children on the basis of their faith,

the very principle of a Catholic parent’s right to

 choose a Catholic education is under threat.

 

If you wish to show your concern please take action by writing to the Hon. Justine Greening Justine Greening Secretary of State for Education with your address and signature.

(Take copy letter at back of church).  OR

 

Please fill in the petition on website. Google ‘Catholic Education’. 

 

You may also wish to write to Guy Upperman MP

House of Commons, London SW1A OAA

Towards Aging and Dying

 

……. and then last night I began to think that

dying is making love with God,

the consummation after a lifetime of flirtations,

encounters, meet­ings in the dark,

and constant yearning, longing,

and sense of loneliness that does

make one insane for the light.

 

 I reflected on the Song of Songs

and thought that it could be an

analogy of how I see dying,

not necessarily as the

body's disintegration and demise,

but rather as the entire transition

that I was born destined to make.

 

I think of my life as a love story with

its ups and downs like any love story,

 but always going in the direction of God

 with the finality of death being the wedding

 of the love between God and myself

after a lifetime betrothal.

 

after Fr. Ronald Rolheiser
