holding a special event for all Catholics in Salisbury to celebrate what we
are trying to achieve in the city and to further the Pope’s call that we go out
and evangelise. This is a new event and will be held in St Elizabeth’s Hall
at 7pm this Wednesday evening 26 November. Please do come along to
this gathering for all our Catholic churches in Salisbury and the surrounding
area. We are very fortunate to have Brother Angelo, from the Franciscan
Friars of the Renewal, to give the address. He comes from Ohio and will
talk to us about evangelisation with great passion. The pupils from St
Joseph’s school will sing for us. Please bring finger food to contribute
towards a bring-and-share supper.
Car parking will be available at St Osmund’s Primary School.

HOLY SOULS — NOVEMBER is the month we remember in our prayers and Masses those who have died.
The Church has from the very earliest days honoured with respect the memory of the dead; and 'because it
is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead that they may be loosed from their sins' (2 Mac 12:46).
There is a basket in front of the altar in which to place the names of your deceased friends, family and loved
ones. A Mass will be offered this coming Saturday for the Holy Souls.
CONGRATULATIONS AND WELCOME to Jamie Coppola who will be baptised this weekend at St
Gregory’s. Please pray for Jamie, his parents and Godparents at this special time.
CONGRATULATIONS to young Daisy Vanderputt who won the Catenian Cup of Achievement for promoting
the Catholic ethos at St Joseph’s school.

THE SAMUEL GROUP is for single young adults (18-30s), who are wondering what God is calling them to
do with their lives. The aim is to help participants discern their direction in life, whether this is to marriage or
dedicated single life, to priesthood or consecrated life. It would also suit those who are making decisions
about their career, or about spending time as a missionary or volunteer. All those who take part grow in
their understanding of what it is to make decisions as a Christian; the main aim is that participants will end
the programme with a clearer view of God’s will for their life. Participants take time to listen to God and to
His Word speaking to their life. They commit to attending monthly meetings with the group, and to meeting
individually with a spiritual guide. Contact Fr Matt Anscombe for details: [email protected]

In our catechesis on the Church, we now consider the universal call to holiness. Thanks to
Baptism, each member of the Church shares in this vocation; every one of us is called to be a
saint. Holiness is first and foremost God’s gift, and not our own achievement. Christ loved the
Church, Saint Paul tells, and gave himself up for her, to make her holy (cf. Eph 5:26). In the
communion of the Church, each of us has been sanctified by the grace of Baptism and is called
to grow in this holiness. Whatever our state of life, we are called to live our daily lives and to fulfil
our various responsibilities in prayerful union with the Lord and our brothers and sisters. Today
let us ask ourselves how well we have responded to this call. By asking us to become holy in
our daily lives, Christ is inviting us to experience in all things his own deep joy and to become a
gift of love to all around us. Growing in holiness thus means becoming better persons, free of
selfishness and self-absorption, and ever ready to place ourselves at the service of our brothers
and sisters in the Church as “good stewards of God’s manifold grace” (1 Pet 4:10).

DIOCESAN PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS “I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered
during the mist and darkness” “I sit and talk to God and he just laughs at my plans”, sang Robbie
Williams on the 2002 single Feel. Have you ever had that feeling? Have you ever found that, despite trying
to follow the Lord, things don’t always turn out the way you planned them? Perhaps the problem is that we
plan too much when we would be better listening. Sometimes we think we’ve got it all sewn up. Fortunately,
when it comes to vocational matters, God knows what we’re like. As the saying goes, “God writes straight
with crooked lines”. If our intentions are good, God will keep shepherding us from the boggy unmarked
terrain and put us firmly on the path we are called to.
mystic and stigmatist who was bedridden from the age of 21 until her death. Marthe could scarcely move
and was unable to swallow. However, when the Host was placed in her mouth, she miraculously consumed
it. Marthe survived on nothing but Holy Communion for 53 years. This is just one example of how ineffably
powerful the sacrament is. The Holy Eucharist is the very body, blood, soul and divinity of Our Lord and
Saviour Jesus Christ. It is the sustenance we need on our journey to Eternal Life. It was the only sustenance
Marthe needed at all. Since the Host is truly Jesus Christ, it is vital that we are not in a state of mortal sin
when we receive Him. It is also important to fast for an hour before Holy Communion in order to prepare
ourselves for this most sacred sacrament. Finally, we must remember to spend time in thanksgiving after
Mass, for this and all the amazing gifts God gives us.
Sunday is the Last Sunday in Ordinary Time and the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the
Universe. Jesus tells the striking parable about how we will all be judged – as a shepherd separates sheep
from goats, based upon our care for the most vulnerable: “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of
the least brothers of mine, you did for me.” We have readings from Luke’s Gospel at weekday Masses,
which grow more explicit about the end of the world. Jesus speaks of the end time and says that the cost of
following him may be high, and may lead to trials and divisions in families. But, he says, “by your
perseverance you will secure your lives.”

Second Reading

Gospel Acclamation
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew 25:31-46
