Life is a Vocation

Once we reflect on our lives in the context of Christ’s calling “follow me”, we are already changed as we allow Christ’s Eyes to rest on us and to touch our hearts deeply.  Once we enter into the paradigm of life as a vocation, we know that the main question for us is not how we live our lives, but with whom […]

Love of God 

Have you ever been asked:  do you love God? Whatever we think, let us say that we do love God to some extent. Do not be afraid to say it. The first step to that love is faith. Faith opens the gate to another world, the world of God’s presence, tenderness, love, call to mission. It is through faith that our relationship with God […]

Baptism of the Lord  

The great joy of the Christmas Celebrations has been flowing through the Epiphany to the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, where it has reached its fulfilment.   Here, at the bank of the River Jordan, the Only Begotten (not Created) Son of God joined those sinners who asked for the gift of conversion, […]

Gaudete Sunday

Mary rejoices  as the words of the Angel echo in her; as Joseph has come back to her, as God draws both of them after Him; as a sign from heaven is given in the blessing of Elisabeth.  Mary and Joseph are still on the way: Love glows at every jolt, rock and rut in the road,  […]

“Therefore, whilst we have time, let us work good to all men, but especially to those who are the household of the faith.” (Ga 6:10)

At Remembrance Sunday, we are entering the second lockdown, which brings even more sadness as we cannot be together on this special day with our veterans whom we respect greatly. Thinking of those who dedicated their lives for others, please accept an initiative to embrace each other, every parishioner in prayer (the Angelus) said together […]

The Love of God

To love God means to accept His love. God wants to be your only Lord, your only love (cf. Ex 20:5; Deut 5:9). He calls us to conversion which always has two elements, turning “to” and turning “away from”. We are to turn away from everything that pushes us away from the only Lord, whom […]
