 GLORIA IN EXCELSIS DEO

“I BRING YOU NEWS OF GREAT JOY; TODAY A SAVIOUR HAS BEEN BORN TO US, CHRIST THE LORD”  (Lk 2:10-11)

Wising you every blessing this Christmas. 

Nollaig Shona daoibh go léir.

PL: Niech duch Swiety wypeti nas radoscia I zesle nan as pocoj.

LT: Tegu Išganytojas palaimina tave ir suteikia tau savo Ramybe.

RO: Crăciun fericit şi un An Nou binecuvântat de Domnul!

ES: ¡Que el Señor los llene de felicidad y paz!

On behalf of the priests of the parish and the team we wish you every peace and blessing this Christmas time.  A warm welcome home to those who have managed to travel and welcome to those who are visiting our parish this Christmas.  We also remember family members and friends who are in other parts of the world; we are separated by distance but united in thought and prayer.


SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

John 1:1-18

This prologue to John’s Gospel is a piece of poetry.  Like all poetry one of the ways to enter into it is to read it a few times slowly and let the words and images speak to you.

The prologue proclaims Jesus as the true light come into the world.  How has Jesus, and the message of Jesus, been a light for you in your life?

The prologue also affirms the transforming power of faith: ‘to all who received him … he gave power to become children of God’.  How would you describe the difference it makes to you to have faith as part of your life?

In Jesus we get a glimpse of God and of the love of God.  But as ‘Jesus people’ in the world today we also are called to be witnesses to the light.  Who has been a witness to you?  To whom have you been a witness?
