MESSAGE FROM FR HUGH

Dear friends in Christ,

This week some wise words from the Holy Father’s homily for Pentecost in 2012.
 
“The Spirit triggers a process of reunification of the divided….This is the effect of God’s work: unity; thus unity is the sign of recognition, the “business card” of the Church in the course of her universal history. From the very beginning, from the day of Pentecost, she speaks all languages.
 
The Church never remains a prisoner within political, racial and cultural confines; she cannot be confused with states nor with federations of states, because her unity is of a different type and aspires to transcend every human frontier.
 
From this there derives a practical sign of discernment for Christian life: When a person or a community, limits itself to its own way of thinking and acting, it is a sign that it has distanced itself from the Holy Spirit. The path of Christians and of the particular Churches must always confront itself with the path of the one Catholic Church, and harmonize with it.”
 
Some great words from our wise and good Pope.

Please remember in your prayers Fr Jim McCormack who died very suddenly last week. He was parish priest of Clacton and had only recently celebrated 50 years of his priesthood. Our Fr Stephen is in Clacton today to look after the Masses for the parish there. He will also be celebrating his first Confirmations as a priest! Pray for him and them.
 
Congratulations today to all our Confirmation candidates. We are very very proud of you.

God love you!,

With every blessing, Fr. Hugh
