“Every Christian community is called to make God, who is love, known to the world”.

                                                                                                                                         Pope Benedict XV1.                                                                                                                          


Christians are invited to support the work of missionaries in their efforts to bring the Gospel message of love to the whole world. People are asked to be as generous as possible in the Propagation of the Faith collection which will be sent in its entirety to a Young Church.

Let the Lord your God be your hope- seek for nothing else from him, let himself be your hope.

There are people who hope from him riches, or perishable and transitory honours; in short, they hope to get from God things, which are not God himself.

Seek for him alone, and despising everything else, make your way to him.

Forget other things, remember him; leave other things behind, stretch out to him.

Let him be your hope, who is guiding you to your destination.

Leave all your desires. He who made heaven and earth is more beautiful than all; he who made all things is better than all; he will be to you everything you love.

Learn to love the Creator in the creature.

Don’t let what was made take such a hold of you that you lose him by whom you yourself were made.

                                                                 St Augustine      The Joy of the Saints
