It was a joy to see so many of you participate enthusiastically in last weekend’s interactive homily. It was another step on the Gospel journey to move beyond our immediate concerns and interests to meet someone we didn’t previously know.
For many of us, because of our upbringing or past Church experience, it can be difficult to get our heads around the fact that the Mass is not a private devotion or indeed my private time with God.
Thus, by casting our fishing net far and wide we take the Gospel message to heart and open ourselves to the life God invites us to share more abundantly with each other.
In the next couple of weeks, we will be casting the net of compassion and support to bring together those of you who are grieving the loss of a loved one. We will begin a bereavement group (dates/times etc. will be posted here) for any of you who feel you are now ready to take this step on the difficult path to healing and learning to live again.
Saint Paul put it like this:
“Blessed be God, Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, merciful Father and God of all comfort. He comforts us in all our sufferings, so that we too, with the comfort we receive from God, may comfort those who go through any suffering.” 2 Cor 1, 3-4.
