TODAY   [1]   On the Twentieth Sunday of the Year we celebrate a Jesus who listens to the pain of the world and learns from us - discovers the universal breadth of His mission through the persistence of a desperate pagan mother. God teaches us, speaks His Word to us through the world and the people around us. Always God is enlarging our hearts to a truly Universal Love, withheld from no-one. Listen to His voice echoing in the world!

NEXT SUNDAY   [1]   With the Twenty-First Sunday of the year, we celebrate Jesus who is the Rock that gushes forth with the water of the Spirit and asks (though Peter) that His Church be such a life-giving Rock through the ages for the peoples of the world. And He asks us as He asked his apostles, ‘Who do you say I am?’ Who is Jesus for you? Share that Jesus with each other, with your world. Draw others to the life-giving Rock that is Jesus among us.
[2]   We rejoice to celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism with one of our children, immersing him into the New Life of Christ that he might become a new creation, grow into Christ’s New Humanity! Please pray for his family. 

DIOCESAN PRAYER  The Diocese prays for the Parish in Communion for Mission of our Cathedral Church of Ss Peter & Paul, Clifton, Bristol, served by Canon Bosco MacDonald and Deacons Kevin Moloney and James Patrick, parish administrator, Mary Manners, and all their community. We pray also for the Convent and Nursing Home of the Little Sisters of the Poor and those they serve.
