This week’s newsletter:
Taking to heart the last words of the Lord Jesus, we will go into the world to proclaim the Good News to the whole of creation. This is the Mission Statement of the Archdiocese of Liverpool.
FERTILITY IS A BIG PART OF OLD TESTAMENT FAITH! Babies are often the sign of God’s loving presence and favour. Perhaps in our own times our needs and God’s will is not so much more babies, but fertility in other ways: we cry out and hope for God’s loving action to bring to birth more fruits of holiness, healthy maturity in faith and hope, more disciples and parishioners.
With Abraham promised the baby and a multitude of heirs; with Paul urging all to maturity in Christ; with Martha and Mary learning how to balance both prayer and action – we continue our efforts to co-operate with God’s fertile loving among us in our times? How can we go forth and multiply?
SHARING the GOOD NEWS
Throughout the year we are ready to welcome new people to walk the way with us, uncovering the presence of God in our lives. At this time especially, we reach out to invite new people.
“Sharing The Good News” sessions on four Tuesday evenings, 7-8pm in SJS, starting 27 Aug is our welcoming, friendly invitation to come and share.
Prayer for “Come and See”
Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of faith
and the strength and joy it brings to our lives.
May your Holy Spirit inspire us to spread your Word
to those seeking you, as we invite them to “Come and See”.
Open their hearts to hear your call and find their way,
with us, to you – the source of true fulfilment.
We ask this through Christ, our Living Lord. Amen.
