Today Father Mervyn presided at the Parish Mass and Father Martin concelebrated and preached. Despite the Olympics being not far away, and people being away on holiday, we had a full church.
In his sermon Father Martin focussed on the Olympics and the training and sacrifices that the contestants in Team GB had been prepared to make so that they could be contestants and winners. He said that we, as Christians. also needed to have training and make sacrifices so we could live up to our vocation.This would include prayer, Bible reading and regular attendance at Mass We would need sustenance and that was supplied for us every time we come to Mass and receive the Bread of Life, the Body of Christ.
