Prayer Of The Month: Lord, make us realise that our Christianity is like a rice field: when it is newly planted the paddies are prominent, but as the plants take root and grow taller, these divided paddies gradually vanish, and soon there appears only one vast continuous field. So give us Lord roots that love, and help us grow in Christian fellowship and service, that thy will be done in our lives, through our savior, Jesus Christ. Amen! (Together-in-Faith Prayer Group)

Weekly Reflection

Sharing Christ’s Glory Revealed in His Suffering

Sharing Christ’s Glory Revealed in His Suffering This weekend we celebrate the 5th Sunday of Lent, we are drawing closer to our destination and to the most important moments in our journey this season. This fact is reflected in all the readings of this weekend. One important thing we must bear in mind as we continue our walk with Christ is that he is as ready to offer everything for our restoration and salvation. So, we too must be willing to offer all for others and for him. The first reading, taken from the book of the Prophet Jeremiah, explains how God will replace the Old Covenant of Judgment with a New Covenant of Forgiveness of sins. This New or Renewed Covenant prophesied by Jeremiah was fulfilled, at least in part, through Jesus’ life, death and Resurrection. The second reading, St. Paul tells the Hebrews that it is by Jesus’ suffering and death, in obedience to his Father’s will, that Jesus established the New Covenant. Using metaphors of the “sown wheat-grain” and the “spent life” in the Gospel, Jesus teaches the same lessons St. Paul does. The Gospel hints at the inner struggle of Jesus in accepting the cup of suffering to inaugurate the New and everlasting Covenant. However, Jesus accepts the cross as his “hour,” meaning the stepping-stone to his passion, death, Resurrection and exaltation. Finally, the “lifting up” of Jesus on the cross and later into Heavenly glory by Resurrection and Ascension is the assurance of our own exaltation and glorification, provided we accept our crosses. New life and eternal life are made attainable for us only by the death of the self through suffering and service. Slat delivers its taste by dissolving in water; the candle give light by burning its wick and melting its wax. Only life spent for others will be glorified here in this world and Heaven. We know that world owes everything to people who have spent their time and talents for God and for their fellow human beings. Therefore as we continue our walk with Christ this season, the thought of his own suffering and death must strengthen us daily. Also, we must constantly remind ourselves that to suffer for others, and for Christ, is an honorable thing to do.

Children’s Liturgy

Children’s Liturgy As a group we gather in the MacKillop Room, listen to the gospel, sing the Alleluia and discuss what it all means for us as followers of Jesus in 2015. We usually respond to the word in a number of ways- using drama, mediation, song, drawing and creating in a meaningful way. We conclude with Prayers of the Faithful, often sharing our own prayers from the heart with each other. We often receive more spiritual wisdom from the children than that from a lot of adults!!
