MESSAGE FROM FR HUGH

Dear friends in Christ,

The gospel this Sunday begins with the disciples telling the story of Emmaus, when Jesus gave his Body and Blood as he celebrated the Eucharist. There the disciples encountered the Risen Christ: "they had come to recognise Jesus in the breaking of bread" (Lk 24. 25).

"Breaking of bread" is an ancient name for the Eucharistic Sacrifice of the Mass. Each of us re-lives the wonder and awe of Emmaus at every Mass. We "recognise Jesus the Lord" in the most perfect way outside of heaven itself as the priest, acting in the person of Christ, offers the Mass. In this way we encounter the Resurrection as an historical and transcendent event. Earth and heaven come together in Jesus the God made Man as he appears before us on the altar of sacrifice.

What an amazing gift we have in the Holy Mass! Always keep that in mind. Never worry about how boring the priest is, or what hymns we’re going to sing, or how noisy or quiet it is. If you take into your heart the wonder of what happened at Emmaus, then the Mass can never be boring. It is our living encounter with Jesus Christ in the braking of bread. Every single crumb of the Host, every single drop of the Precious Blood is Jesus Christ, our Risen Lord. Always keep that in mind when coming up for Holy Communion.

May we all be blessed to truly recognise Jesus at the breaking of bread day by day, Sunday by Sunday.

This week we have our parish pilgrimage to Turin. We will remember you in our prayers and keep you in our hearts as we visit the Holy Places together. Look after Fr John whilst I’m away.

God love you!,

With every blessing, Fr. Hugh
