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

A parishioners comments from a far away land

Thanks, too, for the parish website - I can check the bulletin and Father Leo's sermon every week!

 

World Mission Sunday

 

Pope Francis has released his message

for World Mission Sunday,

focusing on the need to gather round

the person of Jesus and to heed his call

to “proclaim the Gospel of the love of God

 the Father in the Power of the Holy Spirit.

He also emphasised the Church’s role as being

“missionary in nature” and that “young people

 are the hope of mission.”

Prayer for the Harvest

 

Living God,

Our strength and help

We turn to you in our distress.

May the spirit of compassion

Comfort and protect your people.

In the parches lands and failed harvests

We see you hungry.

May the shadow of that hunger

Be broken by the light of your hope.

In our hearts we hold a vision

Of a better world.

May we, by our actions

Bear witness to your love.

Linda Jones Cafod

How  to recognise Grace

 

It takes you by surprise

It comes in odd packages

It sometimes looks like loss

Or mistakes

It acts like rain

Or like a seed

 

Its both reliable and unpredictable

Its not what you were aiming at

Or what you thought you deserved

It supplies what you need

Not necessarily what you want
It grows you up

And lets you be a child

 

It remind  you you're not in control

And that not being in control is a form of

freedom.

(Marilyn Chandler McEntyre)

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.
