In keeping the Commandments, we are acting upon the Word we have heard and share in God’s life of love.
A Clear Vision
A clear Christian vision is needed if we are to live in unity with Christ, energized by the Spirit and giving witness to his light and love. Otherwise, disorder rules our hearts, and our actions bear no good fruit. To have and keep this clear vision of the Truth, we must hear the Word of God and seek to understand it. Sometimes it will confront us and call us to repent. Other times it will console us with a deeper understanding of God’s powerful and healing love for us. Hearing the Word prayerfully, we are better able to decide if our plans and actions have anything to do with giving witness to the love of Christ.
‘Doers of the Word’ act in faith and prayer to imitate Christ. Did you ever see people in action who struck you as being real ‘doers of the Word’? How could you tell? What kind of difference were they making? What effect did this have on you? What are some key memories of your own experience of being a ‘doer of the Word’?
On behalf of Fr. Michael and the Diocese of Dindugal, I thank you for your generous contribution of $3,329.50 to their work.
Parish Feast Day
My thanks to all who made our celebrations for the Feast of St. Monica a great success, in particular the Liturgical Ministries and the Social Committee. With perfect weather, a wonderful Mass and great food, everyone enjoyed themselves. Many also had the opportunity to meet Fr. Gerard Plant and Deacon Tom Cuddihy, the two newest members of our community.
May everything we do in some way promote God’s love within us and allow us as a community to shine as a beacon of God’s hope in the world.
