Quote of the Week

We are asked – to see ourselves, as WE, and not ME.


Hw. Coffee Morning today after Mass


3rd Sunday of Lent


We sinned each day we passed you by

And did not bind your wound,

To this one’s pain and that one’s cry

Remaining unattuned. (sic)


So doing to the very least,

We did, O Lord, to you

For, like the Levite and the priest,

We had so much to do.


We left you lying there for dead,

Abandoned and unhealed;

In your unheeded cry for bread

Is selfishness revealed.
