After the success of our Annual Winter Bazaar it was good to come together this morning to give thanks in our well-supported Parish Mass. Father Martin presided and Father Mervyn read the Gospel, preached and concelebrated. Father Martin led us in our Intercessions.
In his sermon Father Mervyn reminded those who had recently been on our pilgrimage to the Holy Land, that they had witnessed the truth of the prophecy of Jesus about the destruction of the Temple. Jesus had warned Christians that they were likely to be persecuted for their faith and he quoted several examples from around the world where there is persecution in our day and age. We should keep these Christians in our prayers: they have truly taken up their cross and followed Jesus. We must be prepared to do the same should we be called to do so.
