Weekly reflection

 

UPDATE FROM FR BILL

When it comes to our eating habits, it seems that grazing is often kinder to one’s digestive system. Of course, we are all different when it comes to our food. Some people cannot manage without three square meals in the day, whereas others are better able to deal with a slow-and-steady trickle of food. It is often said that grazing is kinder to one’s digestive system as it reduces pesky bloating and energy slumps. The subject of Food is topical at this present time, and we are blessed with an abundance in market stalls and supermarkets, though not everybody can afford to buy food given the recent hike in prices. Thank God for food banks, for those who work in them and especially those who generously contribute on a regular basis.

 

In addition to feeding and nourishing the body, we must also feed and nourish the soul. Here in this church, we must come regularly to be fed by the Word of God and by our blessed Lord who comes to us in a very special way in the Eucharist. Hearing his Word and partaking of His body and blood strengthens our faith and enables us to grow more deeply in the love of God and our neighbour.  Last weekend, 18th/19th May, with great joy we celebrated our parish first holy communions, welcoming eighty-six children, their parents, extended family and friends who were divided into three groups, two on Saturday, one morning and afternoon, with the third group on Sunday at 12.30 pm.  I’m sure you will appreciate these occasions do not just happen without the tremendous amount of work and time by our catechists, who spend months preparing the children and their parents. A huge thank you to Mary Burke and her team, to our welcomers and our carparking stewards, and to Chris and Terry for providing the music, and of course to the parents and children.  Congratulations to:  Johnny, Leo, Matthias, Oskar, Luca, Sophia, Isabelle, Olivia, Ryan, Tadeo, Oliver, Sofia K, Jessie, Bethany, Jacob, Ian, Sebastian, Michelle, Theo, Chiara, Maya, Eva, Lydia, Orla, Jimmy, Emily, Laura, Samantha, Aiden, Ryan, Sophie C, Xavier, Berta, Gabby, Daniel, Adrian, Michelle, Isabella, Darcie, Ariana, Sofia M, Rosangela, Michaila, Charlie, Eric, Agnes, Edison, Liam, Jack, Rose, Justina, Giovanna, Nevaeh, Scarlett, Nathan, Luisella, Luke, Rory, Caddaric, Tommy, Sara, Alice, Sam, Jesse, Kai I, Thomas, Archer, Kai J, Philomena, Caitlyn, Elizabeth, Samuel, Walden, Carson, Anson, Sophie V, Leo, Alastair, Jemima, Ellie, Wilbur, John, Amelia, Melodie, Avery and Cillian.

Now parents it is over to you to continue to nourish your child each week here at Holy Mass by receiving our Lord in the Eucharist, a spiritual food best grazed regularly.

 

May God Bless you all,

Canon Bill
