Thought for the day: As disciples, we all need a kind of personal “rule of life”, and we are supported by the community of faith and its practices. But the externals of religions, the very supports we need, risk becoming merely cultural, an empty shell, if our heart is not in it. All three readings this Sunday underline the point: Pure, unspoilt religion is this: coming to the help of orphans and widows when they need it. Prayer: Heavenly Father, you know the human heart, that most devious thing of all (Sir 42:18; Jer 17:9). Help us to know ourselves. Help us to grow in integrity, rooted in purity of heart. Help to serve our neighbour in need with undivided hearts that we may come before you in heartfelt praise and thanksgiving. Amen

Pope Francis Tweet: Let us ask the Lord to help us be consistent and to courageously combat anything that can lead us away from the truth and from the faith we profess. Only thus can we truly build unity and fraternity.

Season of Creation 2021 runs from Sept 1st (the World Day of Prayer for Creation) to October 4th (the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi). Pope Francis in Laudato Si’ calls faith communities to respond and reminds us that “All is not lost. Human beings… are also capable of rising above themselves, choosing again what is good, and making a new start… [embarking] on new paths to authentic freedom.” (LS, 205). The forthcoming Season of Creation is a wonderful opportunity to do just that. The theme for this year’s season is “Restoring Our Common Home”. Leaflets are available at the back of the 3 Parish Churches.
