THE PARISH PRIEST WRITES:
Dear parishioners and dear friends
Think of the ways in which we are NOURISHED at Mass, especially by WORD and by SACRAMENT. Think of the ways in which a human being needs to be nourished correctly; think how easily we nourish ourselves badly. Then think how it is not only food and drink but also thought and deeds that are involved.
We hear today -
‘the whole community of Israel began to COMPLAIN against Moses and Aaron’.
‘I want to urge you in the name of the Lord, not to go on living the aimless kind of life that Pagans live’
and‘ do not work for food that cannot last’.
Resolve to make the effort to share in Mass and grow in trust in Our Lord.
Today avoid complaining, give your life purpose by Prayer, Thought and Deed, so as to avoid those things that are just passing fancies or addictions/compulsions. Build up your potential goodness.
God bless you, with prayers for safe travelling.
P.S.: we are still desperate for Mass Stipends.
