Father Hughs Message

Dear Friends in Christ,

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta gave an interview to a reporter when she opened a house to care for men living with AIDS. The reporter asked if her sisters talked to the patients about God. “Of course,” she said, “We pray with them and teach them to pray. We take them to confession to be reconciled with God.” A bit surprised, the reporter said, “But many people think that evangelisation does not always mean talking about Jesus.” “And who do they think we should talk about?” asked Mother Teresa. “Some say it is enough to simply accompany them,” replied the reporter. “Well then,” said Mother Teresa, “They are not missionaries. They are not proclaiming Christ. They are doing it for something, but we are doing it for Someone.”

Our gospel this Sunday on the solemnity of Christ the King reminds us that we all called to serve Christ the King by being of service to each other. We are called to proclaim Christ in all that we do and we do it for Him who reigns over us all. It is on this that we will be judged by Christ. As we rejoice that Christ is the King - a reminder of the absolute truth of the Christian faith - we renew in our hearts the desire to help our brothers and sisters for the glory of God and the salvation of souls.

Please step up your prayers for Br Stephen. His ordination is only two weeks away and we need to accompany him with our prayers and love. Don’t forget to be here as well for his ordination on December 6th. Thank God for the gift of a new priest for Chelmsford.

Br Stephen’s ordination will mark a great beginning to the Year of Consecrated Life. Pope Francis has decided that from 30th November 2014 till 2nd February 2016, we will all celebrate a year devoted to the Consecrated Life. So we thank God for the many Religious Brothers and Sisters who serve God in the Consecrated Life and ask God to send more vocations to our religious communities.

A big thank you to everyone who came to our Parish Bazaar and an even bigger heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped prepare for the day. THANK YOU!

God love you

With every blessing, Fr Hugh
