Pope Francis teaches ....

We cannot be Christians without the grace of the Holy Spirit who gives us the strength to love. St. Paul describes his experience of Jesus, an experience "that led him to leave everything behind" because "he was in love with Christ. The Apostle asks The Father for all of us, "to be powerfully strengthened in our inner selves, through his Spirit". ....

And with this inner life we can understand how Paul gave up everything and considered it all rubbish, in order to gain Christ and be found in Christ. It does us good to think of this, it does us good to worship God. It does us good to praise God, to enter this world of plenty, of grandeur, generosity and love. It does us good, because then we can move forward in the great commandment - the only commandment, which is the basis of all others - love; love God and love your neighbour.


Nursery/Reception Forms will be signed in November - A Diary of appointments will be available next weekend. Forms cannot be signed outside published times.
