TODAY   [1]   On the Twenty-Ninth Sunday of the Year we celebrate that Jesus is Lord of Lords and King of Kings and our deepest loyalty is to Him, His Gospel and His Kingdom. This loyalty must come before all other loyalties – to family, to culture, to tribe or nation. The Vision contained in the preaching and witness of Jesus, His Good News, is a vision of a Universal family where every human person is a beloved child of the Father and therefore my sister or brother – we are all one family. Every other loyalty is conditional – only to Jesus and His Kingdom can we give our all, our soul and heart, our everything.
[2]   This is also, very appropriately, World Mission Sunday and the beginning of One World Week. We have a global responsibility to build a different world and a new way of social interaction, social friendship as Pope Francis puts it in his new Encyclical Letter ‘Fratelli Tutti’ – we are all one family and the mission of the Church is to build that reality in the world by making it truly flesh in the Body of Christ the Church and all its activity and life. The Church does not have a mission – IT IS MISSION! WE ARE MISSION!
[3]   Mass and Ministry with the Catholic LGBT+ community and family and friends at 3.00pm – all very welcome.
[4]   Both Masses today are being live-streamed on our Parish Website.
[5]   There is a Second Collection as all the parish communities of the world contribute to the global mission of the Church by prayer, action and the gift of money. Thank you for your generosity.

NEXT SUNDAY   [1]   With the Thirtieth Sunday of the Year we celebrate that the Heart of God is Love and therefore the heart of God’s Law is beyond law because it is the call to unlimited loving. And central to our response to the loving heart of God is care for and love for the poor, the outcast, the excluded, the marginalised – as the reading from the Book of Exodus today makes abundantly clear. No-one is to be excluded from our love (including our own selves) as no-one is excluded from God’s loving.
[2] We have the joy of immersing little Patrick Alban into this immense Divine Love in the Sacrament of Baptism at our 10.00am Mass. Please pry for him, his family and all who are seeking baptism or have been delayed Sacraments of Initiation because of Covid 19.   

DIOCESAN PRAYER        The Diocese  prays for the Parish in Communion for Mission of St George’s, Warminster served by Fr Martin Queenan, together with Fr Raymond Hayne and Fr Malcolm Ferrier  and all their community.

PRAY FOR THIS WEEK’S PARISH MINISTRY OR MISSION  This week, pray God’s Blessing upon the ministry of our Lay Ministers of the Eucharist. These sisters and brothers of ours not only assist in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass, but also lead Services of Word and Communion when the priest is absent – enabling our community to be sustained by the Word of God and the Bread of life, nurturing our life and mission as a community. They also enable the Prayer of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and very importantly bringing the Christ of Word and Eucharist to our sick and housebound who cannot join us around the Table of the Lord. They also express lay ministry and collaborative patterns of ministry at the heart of our worship – at the Eucharist, Please pray with gratitude for their ministry among us.
