Reflecting on the Love of God and Neighbour
Love Is More than We Can See
A man once observed a young boy out in a field flying a kite.
He noticed that there was something odd about the way the
boy was standing and holding on to the string. He walked up
to the boy and then learned that the boy was blind. He said,
"Do you like flying kites?" The boy said, "I sure do." This
piqued the man's curiosity and he asked, "How is that when
you cannot see it?"
The boy answered, "I may not be able to see it but I can feel
it tugging'!"
We may not always be able to identify the love of God in this
world. Like the little boy, we may not be able to see love but
it has a tug that lets us know it is there. Brett Blair,
" By loving the unlovable, You made me lovable."
St. Augustine
With all good wishes…
Fr. Peter
A Warm Welcome to the Fatima Group

“ To Listen to what He (The Lord) tells us…”
November is a special month of the year for prayers
for the Faithful Departed.
“It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray
for the dead, that they may be loosed from their sins.”
(2 Mac. 12.46). “From the beginning the church has
honoured the memory of the dead and offered prayers in
suffrage from them, above all the Eucharistic sacrifice,
so that, thus purified, the may attain the beatific vision
of god. The church also commends almsgiving, indulgences, and works of penance undertaken on behalf of
the dead”. (Catechism of the Catholic church, 1032)
Remember that the Church teaches us how to put into
practice mercy to our fellow man in the seven Corporal
and Spiritual Works of Mercy is to pray for the living
and the dead. Our priests will be accepting offerings for
November Masses to be said for the Intentions of the
Faithful Departed. If you would like to have a Mass offered for the faithful of a loved one. Please take an envelope and fill in the details and place it on the plate
during the offertory.
Please note that all Mass intentions offered will be
prayed for at all Masses, we just cannot fit all names in
the bulletin.
