THE PARISH PRIEST WRITES:
Dear parishioners and dear friends
Today the Readings remind us of the Banquet of the Lord. We thank God for the nourishment, for our daily lives, that we receive at Mass. Take seriously the warnings contained in Matthew’s account of the Wedding Feast. His Gospel is very conscious of how the leaders of Christ’s day found excuses to ignore Christ.
How can we benefit from the Mass? Rule of Thumb: decide for whom or what you will pray before you reach Church, then consciously listen so that you go from Mass with a ‘thought’ to help your work.
WELCOME TO FR FRANCIS RODRIGUES S.J.: - Alfred’s Uncle.
As many know, Dean, Alfred & Cristobel’s son, will marry Leah Frazer this weekend, then celebrations will continue in India and then her family will return to New Zealand. This is why Fr Francis and many guests are here. They are all most welcome and the happy occasion gives me an opportunity to acknowledge the Parish’s debt in so many areas to the Rodrigues Family and to wish the young couple every happiness and God’s Blessing.
God Bless you.
P.S.: This Newsletter covers the weekends of 19th and 26th October as well.
