Pastor's Desk: 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted 25th October 2014 in Pastor's Desk

lovethyneighbourWelcome everyone. This Sunday’s Gospel is very easy to understand but quite difficult to live out in our daily lives. The question is posed to Jesus, which is the greatest Commandment? Remember that the Jewish Torah contained 613 Commandments from God so this was no idle query! Jesus summarises all the Laws of God in the following, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets also.’

Feast of All Saints 1st November

As this is the last weekend in October I hope everyone remembered to put their clocks back! Otherwise you will be arriving an hour early for everything. Also, a quick reminder that next Saturday is the 1st November, the Feast of All Saints and a holy day of obligation. We have 10am Mass on the Saturday itself. Please note, we have no Vigil Mass here in Holy Trinity Church but our neighbouring parishes do. The 6.30pm Saturday evening is, as usual, the Vigil Mass of Sunday. I hope you all have a very enjoyable Bank Holiday weekend and we wish the school children a restful and safe midterm break for the coming week.
