Thought for the week

If we don’t transform sin, we transmit sin.

 

Trinity Sunday

 

God of unity,

Trinity of the Three,

You call your people to be one

That the world may believe.

Grant us your Spirit

That we might act and speak with one voice

So that our world’s pains and divisions

May be transformed by healing, hope and reconciliation,

Our Lord’s prayer be answered,

And your name glorified and hallowed.

Amen.

 

 

 

Next Sunday 3rd June – The Body & Blood of Christ

Come, Holy Spirit, upon all who are labouring to give birth to new ideas and ways of being. Give comfort to those who are apprehensive, confidence to those who are preparing for change, and trust in your guidance. Give us all a sense of deep security and hope, founded on our

confident trust in God’s everlasting love.

The Ascension of the Lord

 

It would be a mistake to interpret the Ascension

as “the temporary absence of Christ from the world”.

Rather, 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 XVI

Eastertime – a time to reflect and pray that complements our spiritual spring-clean of Lent.

We ponder 6th May – Sixth Sunday of Easter

 

Jesus commissions his disciples – and us – to go out into the world and bear fruit.

Through our words and actions … with the promise that this fruit will last and, hopefully, bear seeds of future growth for others.

 

·       Where does my life bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit?

 

(See Galatians 5:22-23 for the list of the fruits).

Prayer for the week.

Lord protect me from gloomy saints. Keep me reasonably sweet, for a sour old person is one of the crowning works of the devil.

St. Therese of Avilla.


I suppose grief never


ends but it changes.


Some have described it


as a journey or a passage


and not a place to stay.


It is certainly


not a sign of


weakness nor a lack of faith.


It is rather the


price of love.


The price we pay


for having truly loved.

The disciples leave the upper room enthused,

confident and full of hope.

So may our trials keep us strong,

our sorrows keep us human and our failures

keep us humble.

May our hope keep us happy and

our enthusiasm keep us looking forward.

May our faith banish depression,

our wealth meet our needs and our friends give us comfort.

And may we have, in the Risen Lord,

determination to make each day a little better than yesterday.

Quote of the week

Our hope is not just optimism; it is something else, more! It is as if believers have an additional ‘piece of heaven’ over their heads  

..... accompanied by a presence which some are not even able to sense .

Pope Francis Oct. 2017.

 

Editors Note

Alleluia, He is Risen

 

O God, who on this day,

Through your Only Begotten Son,

Have conquered death

And unlocked for us the path to eternity,

Grant, we pray, that we who keep

The solemnity of the Lord’s Resurrection

May, through the renewal brought by your Spirit,

Rise up in the light of life.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

Who lives and reigns with you in the unity

Of the Holy Spirit,

One God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Urgent Message about our children and our schools.

At the last of the Lenten Partnership Masses a representative from our schools read out an appeal for all parishioners to consider supporting in any way the future of our children’s education following Government proposed reorganisations. Some of examples given is to pray daily from the prayer card given to each parishioner ‘Praying for Schools in West Northumberland’; another to write to M.P. – pro forma letters to follow.

You and the Holy spirit,
