Sunday Gospel ‘What must I do to inherit eternal life?’ Entirely the wrong question! Many people think that getting to heaven can be compared to a savings bank, or a club card scheme: the more you spend, or save, the more points you have to get yourself redeemed. A better question: What must I be? The Lord is more interested in the kind of person I am, the virtues I seek in my prayer and charity. The life of Christ is the example that we should take, he didn’t own anything or crave after wealth or possessions, we should be the same as him. The call he gives to us is to seek God’s will each day, a way of life that models and shapes us to become his true followers. Money will make you wealthy, but it cannot make you happy. True happiness comes from the virtues we accept into our lives, giving us the sure knowledge that we have put God and his kingdom before anything else.

The Prisons’ Week Prayer Lord, you offer freedom to all people. We pray for those in prison. Break the bonds of fear and isolation that exist. Support with your love prisoners and their families and friends, prison staff and all who care. Heal those who have been wounded by the actions of others, especially the victims of crime. Help us to forgive one another, to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly together with Christ in his strength and in his Spirit, now and every day. Amen. 10 to 16 October 2021

October Mission Month 2021 has started and this year’s theme is “We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard” Acts 4:20. Mission Month, including World Mission Sunday, is the Holy Father’s annual appeal for spiritual and financial support so that the life-giving work of overseas mission and missionaries can continue. It always falls on the second last Sunday in October, meaning this year it will be celebrated over the weekend of Sunday 24 October 2021
