Today Father Martin presided at the Parish Mass ; Father Mervyn was at St. Andrew’s, North Weald. Father Martin blessed the new flagon given in loving memory of Jean who had been a member of the parish for many years. This will be used for the first time next week.
In his sermon Father Martin talked about commitment. He used the illustration of the chicken and the pig. For breakfast the chicken makes a contribution in her egg whilst the pig shows total commitment making a sacrifice in giving bacon. When the Apostles followed Jesus they made a total commitment becoming “vagabonds” i.e. giving up their homes and families in their commitment to Jesus. If we want God to be the centre of our lives we need to make a commitment to him.
