THIS WEEK (16th December 2018)
Thoughts for the week:
- “What must we do?” people ask John the Baptist in today’s Gospel. His answer is basically to be ‘honest’, to be ‘people of integrity’ and to be ‘generous’ in response to others. Are we? Are you? Am I?
- “The Lord God in in your midst” Zephaniah says (1st reading). Yes he is where we are, where you are, where I am!! Do we look and live as if we believe it? If ‘yes’, when and how? if ‘no’, why not?
- “There is no need to worry” St Paul writes (2nd reading). Yet we do! Why do we? Can you/me not simply trust God? What is stopping us? Vincent Harvey

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.
