MESSAGE FROM FR HUGH

Dear friends in Christ,

In St Peter’s Square, there are two huge statues that guard the steps up to the basilica, one of St Peter and the other is St Paul. We know that St Peter was the first Pope, but what we sometimes forget is that the teaching authority of the Pope also comes from St Paul. St Paul’s mission of preaching and teaching found it’s culmination in his martyrdom in Rome. The authority of the Pope to guide and lead the Church is consecrated in the blood of these two great martyrs.

Today we celebrate two great saints whose lives consecrated Rome. Now Rome is a city that you can never be bored of. Every street, every road contains a new discovery and it is bathed in history. It is a beautiful place. Yet, as much as I love visiting, I would hate to live there. The chaos of Rome would eventually drive me mad! Also, only twice in my life have I had my wallet stolen and both times were in Rome! It is a city filled with holiness and beauty, so many shrines, so many saints - but it is also a modern city filled with chaos and crime.

I suppose the city of Rome is really an image of the Church. There are many, many saintly and good people in the Church (not me sadly but I am working on it!). There are men and women of outstanding virtue and holiness. But there are also sinners (like me!) who need the grace of the sacraments and Gods help to get by each day.

Pope Benedict once said “The Church is not a community of the perfect, but a community of sinners, obliged to recognize their need for God’s love, their need to be purified through the Cross of Jesus Christ.” Pope Francis has carried on that call.

Today as we celebrate two great saints, the first Pope, St Peter, and the author of most of the New Testament, St Paul, we celebrate the love of God which took men like St Peter and St Paul and built his Church upon them. In the same way He calls each of us, with all our frailties and flaws, to become saints.

God love you!,

With every blessing, Fr. Hugh
