SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

Luke 2:16-21

The story tells us that the shepherds helped Mary to realise the significance of the child born to her.  She treasured their words and pondered their meaning.  Who have been the people who have helped you to understand the meaning of significant events in your life?  Remember them gratefully.

We are told that Mary ‘pondered these things in her heart’.  What part has prayerful reflection on life played for you?   How has it been helpful to you in deepening your appreciation for the gift of life?

When the shepherds realized that they had been witnesses to a wonderful manifestation of God’s love for his people they glorified and praised God.  Recall ways in which you have been made aware of God’s love for you.  How have you expressed your gratitude?

MESSAGE FOR THIS NEW YEAR

New Year message: “roll up our sleeves for peace”

(Last year, Pope Francis made a plea for peace in his New Year message.  That same plea must be heard in our world as we begin a new year.) 

In his New Year message Pope Francis urges everyone to "roll up our sleeves" for peace.  He invites the faithful to keep positive while working to build a better society. 

Pope marked World Day of Peace.  He devoted his Angelus address to encouraging a stop to violence around the world, telling the assembled crowd at Saint Peter's Square to keep peace at the forefront of their thoughts.

"Let's go home thinking peace, peace, peace. We need peace," said the pope, following his Angelus prayer.

"I was looking at the images in the television programme today, about war, displaced people, the miseries. This is happening today in the world. We want peace."

The Pope reminded the faithful that peace required "concrete actions," such as forgiving others and promoting justice.

"And it needs a positive outlook as well, one that always sees, in the Church as well as in society, not the evil that divides us, but the good that unites us!" he said, speaking from the window of the Apostolic Palace.

"Getting depressed or complaining is useless. We need to roll up our sleeves to build peace." 

On behalf of everyone on the parish team I want to  thank you, our parishioners for your prayers and support during the past year.  We have rallied together as community and as parish and we have grown together.  May the hope and strength of Christ be with you in this New Year. 

Fr Joe Gallagher PP
