Thought for the Day:
When Jesus presses the question, who do you say I am, we feel him speaking to us. Naturally, we think of our faith now in the light of our own journey of life and pilgrimage of faith. How did I start out? What was my image of Jesus then and how did I relate to him? Have there been major turning points for me and can I name one or two? How have I deepened my familiarity with Jesus and who is he for me now? If I were to choose an image or a metaphor what would come to mind? If I were to explain to someone what my faith in Jesus is, what words would I use? Prayer: For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. (Eph. 3:14-17)

Permanent Diaconate – Any interested candidates should contact their local priest by Thursday 10th September.

A Prayer for Sustainability
As we breathe the very air which sustains us,
We remember your love, God which compels us.
Fill us with the spirit to seek understanding.
Empty us of apathy, selfishness and fear.
Fill us with compassion and generosity.
Empty us of all pessimism and hesitation.
Breathe into us solidarity with all who suffer
beneath the crossroads of pollution and poverty.
Breathe us into action building your sustainable kingdom. (Source: Reflections collated by Anne M. Holton)
