Thought for the day: What does it mean to be saved? We have the secular sense of being rescued or spared somehow. The root meaning of the word in Greek and Latin is to be healed. So, the beginning is some recognition of need, of something fractured, unwell in my life. It includes faith in God who wants us to be both whole and holy, fully alive. The big “sickness” is death itself – from which we are saved/healed through God’s love to us in the lifting up of Jesus in death into resurrection. Prayer: Heavenly physician, heal whatever in us is dead or wounded or unfree that we may know the wholeness, freedom, life and joy of the Gospel. Fr K. O’Mahony OSA.

Recordings of daily Mass will be available on the Parish website each day. Funeral recording will be available for a month.

Prayer of St Teresa of Avila
Let nothing disturb you,
let nothing frighten you,
all things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices. Amen

Pope Francis – Tweet: All of us have spiritual infirmities that we cannot heal on our own. We need Jesus’ healing, we need to present our wounds to him and say: “Jesus, I am in your presence, with my sins, with my sorrows. You can set me free. Heal my heart”. #Lent.
