Dear People of God Here we are again, preparing to welcome Christ anew into our lives in this Season of Christmas. As we reflect on a year that is coming to an end, maybe it has been a year of challenges, or a year of choices. Maybe it has been a year of changes, of …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 11 December 2016

REFLECTION FOR THE THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT Among the Lectionary readings this week we find a promise from Isaiah of God’s restoration for God’s people, Mary’s song of faith and justice, John the Baptiser’s doubts about Jesus, and a call from James for the believers to be patient in suffering. What a fascinating mix! The …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 4 Dec 2016

REFLECTION FOR THE SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT Notice two things about John’s message to the religious leaders. Firstly, he told them that it was not enough for them to be “children of Abraham”. Their human ancestry and their position in the religious community did not automatically mean that they were participants in God’s Reign. In …

Season of Advent 2016

advent-wreath

It was Pope Gregory 1 [590-604] who settled the Season of Advent of four Sundays with a very clear emphasis on the Christian hope of the Coming of Christ. Benard of Clairvaux [d. 1153] summarises the theology of the Seasons of Advent as the three comings of Christ, past, present and future. ’In the first, …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 27 November 2016

REFLECTION FOR THE FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT In too many ways the life of Christians and their churches simply reflects the values and beliefs of the societies around us. To look at us you wouldn’t know that we wait for a different world, and hold out the hope of peace and justice. If we really …

Pew leaflet Sunday 20 November 2017

Today as a Church, we conclude our liturgical year and celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. The Gospel we proclaim shows the great mystery of our faith: In the moment of his crucifixion, Jesus is shown to be King and Savior of all. Luke’s Gospel has been loaded with surprises: the poor are rich, …

Pew Leaflet Sunday 13th November 2016

The call of the Lord is always to live in the present. Suppose we knew for certain the date that the world was going to end. What would we do differently, except to continue what we are already doing. If the only way we can motivate our people to live a life of goodness is …
