Pastoral Care
Sunday Reflection-Second Sunday of Advent
John went all through the country around the Jordan River, proclaiming a baptism of repentance, leading to forgiveness of sins. Luke 3, 1-6

“In the fifteenth year of the rule of Tiberius Caesar, when Pontius Pilate was procurator of Judea, Herod tetrarch of Galilee, Philip his brother tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, during the high-priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God was spoken to John son of Zechariah in the desert.”

Sunday Reflection - First Sunday of Advent

First Sunday of Advent

“When you see these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand.” Luke 21, 25-28, 34-36

In the gospel reading for this first Sunday of Advent, Jesus prods us to be alert enough to recognize the many signs of God’s love at work in the world around us. Even in our own personal mishaps and disasters, God’s healing and compassionate presence is to be found, if only we had the sensitivity to recognise it. Becoming more alert to the presence of God all around us is the Church’s way of calling us to prepare ourselves for the arrival among us of Jesus, God’s greatest sacrament, whose whole life was about pointing humanity towards the goodness and love of God. Advent is that period of preparation.

29th Oct - Sunday Reflection

29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Our high priest is not one who cannot feel sympathy for our weaknesses. On the contrary, we have a high priest who was tempted in every way that we are, but he did not sin. Let us be brave, then, and approach God’s throne where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us when we need it.” Hebrews 4, 15-16

“You know that those who are recognised as rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones make their authority over them felt. This, however, is not the way it is to be among you. If one of you wants to be great, he must be servant of the rest; and if one of you wants to be first, he must be the slave of all.” Mark 10, 35-45

11th Nov - Sunday Reflection

32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, and who have the best seats in the synagogues and places of honour at banquets! They devour widows’ houses and, for the sake of appearances, say long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.” He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting money in. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, the equivalent of a penny...”Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury.” Mark 12, 38-44
