THIS WEEK (21st October 2018):
THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK:
1. When have you made your ‘authority felt’? (Gospel). Why? Was there another way to respond/react?
2. When have you felt ‘crushed’ with suffering (1st reading)? Why? Did you find support from others? From your faith? From the Church?
3. We have a high priest (Jesus) who can feel ‘our weaknesses with us’ (2nd reading). Do you think Jesus ‘feels’ your weakness? Does that help you? Have you helped others in their ‘weaknesses’? Vincent Harvey
Parish Theme: ‘Peace’. November 2018 will see the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. As the year progresses, without doubt society, civic and religious, will be focusing on world peace, maybe more needed now than ever in our world history! PARISH THEME— OCTOBER: Peace through Racial and Cultural Unity The Polish-American film producer Samuel Goldwyn is quoted as having said in an address at Balliol College, Oxford in 1945. “For years I have been known for saying ‘Include me out’; but today I am giving it up for ever.” Let us pray that we will always ‘include ourselves in’ to any debate on the threat to Peace from exclusive, partisan organisations and people and that we remain vigilant in the fight against prejudice, intolerance and discrimination.
Pope Francis’ Intention for October: Evangelisation: The Mission of Religious. That consecrated religious men and women may bestir themselves and be present among the poor, the marginalised, and those who have no voice.
St. Joseph's and St. Edmund's ...
is a warm, welcoming and diverse Catholic community at the heart of Southampton. People from across the globe come regularly to worship here at one of the several Sunday or weekday Masses. Catholics and people of any Christian community or faith (or none) are able to use St Edmund's Church as a place of quiet and reflection throughout the day.
