A Word from Fr. Hilary…

Our Gospel reading today should cause us to
pause and think about the wonderful future that
is within our reach!  It is telling us that God is
longing for our homecoming in the next world.  
Meanwhile the one thing necessary is to make
sure that we will arrive safely by responding to
His love.  

We are never nearer that love than when we come forward at Holy
Mass to receive the Body and Blood of Christ in Holy Communion
and when in our daily lives we avail ourselves of the opportunities
of sharing in Christ’s life.  By beginning our day with a prayer or
asking His blessing before we eat our food, offering encouragement
and support to our family, friends and neighbors in the small circle
of our living, we are extending this brief spell of Eucharistic
celebration into every detail of our day.  

In this way, my friends, we are not facing life alone… we are
with one another,  and with Jesus Christ.


Let us avail ourselves to receive His grace,
Fr. Hilary
