Thoughts for the week
1. As Jesus processes into Jerusalem ‘’....the whole city was in turmoil’’ the opening Gospel says. In what way are you in ‘’turmoil’’ because of the current situation? How can you ‘’place’’ it in God’s hands? How can you support others in their ‘turmoil’?
2. Isaiah, in the first reading, writes, “So I may know how to reply to the wearied He provides me with speech”. Through your faith and humanity what words of hope, promise or challenge has the Lord given you to speak to others?
3. St Paul (2nd reading) says that Christ Jesus was “humbler yet, even to accepting death...” In what way can your humility be a source of service or leadership?
4. After Jesus was arrested, we hear in The Passion Gospel, “all the disciples deserted him and ran away”. When have you ‘deserted’ others in their hour of need? Why? When have you stood by? Why? This week how are you going to try to ‘stay’ with Christ Jesus?: read the Scriptures, daily time in prayer, create space just to ‘be’?

SICK AND IN HOSPITAL?

The Mission
Thank you to all who planned, ran and got involved with the Mission held from 30 May - 9 June 2019.  A special thanks to Father Des, Tina Quinn, the ‘Welcomers’, ‘Hospitality Teams’ and musicians/singers.  Many of us have benefited from the 9 days of prayer, talks, reflections, conversations and Masses.  Now what next?

- Winter shelter scheme?
- Reader, Eucharistic Minister?
- Welcomer, Hospitality…?
Maybe ‘Called and Gifted’ (July) or
