Tuesday                      Agnes McCabe                                       Saturday      No Morning Mass

                                            The New Missal
The long Creed, the one usually said at Mass, is called the Nicene Creed. Though the original beginning is “We believe”, both Greek and Latin Christians traditionally begin “I believe” when reciting the Creed liturgically.
I believe in one God, the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible,
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, 
he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the scriptures. He ascended into heaven.
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and dead
and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, and giver of life
Who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, 
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come.
“Where ever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine”       
                                                                                                                   Anthony Angelo
Sunshine always lifts the spirit and it’s easy to see it when we get a few sunny days together. 
It puts everyone in great form and everyone is determined to make the most of it when it comes. It’s up to us too to most of our own sunshine and what we can give to others.
Like life, the weather may be unpredictable, but we should always bring our own unique sunshine with us wherever we go. 
Our sunshine, our words, our smile, our presence, our prayers can and do make the world of difference. It would be shame if we undervalued the difference we make. 
                                                                                                  from a Year in Reflection
