O Lord, save Elizabeth, our Queen.

day we call upon you.
O Lord, hear my prayer.

The Lord be with you.

C: Almighty God, we pray,
that your servant Elizabeth, our
Queen, who, by your providence has
received the governance of this
realm, may continue to grow in every
virtue, that, imbued with your heavenly grace, she may be preserved
from all that is harmful and evil and,
being blessed with your favour may,
with her consort and the royal family,
come at last into your presence,
through Christ who is the way, the
truth and the life and who lives and
reigns with you in the unity of the
Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and
ever.
Amen

FAITH IN FOCUS:
FLAWS, FAULTS,FAILINGS AND FORGIVENESS
First Holy Communion
Next Sunday
are so perfect that we have
never needed forgiveness
from another person or
from God.
For that’s where forgiveness comes from: God.
Our sins deface the beauty
of God’s presence in our
world and we need to ask
forgiveness from God. And
Parish celebrates First Holy Communion
On Sunday 19th June, 6 children will be
making their First Holy Communion. The
candidates and their families will be using
the first three rows at the front of Church.
Please keep our young people in your
prayers.
P
sychologists tell us
that often when
we get on our high horse
about someone else’s
faults, it’s because we recognise those same failings
in ourselves and our ranting
and raving at others is a
way of exorcising them
from our own psyche.
As long as we have a
target at which we can
direct our anger we
can push our own imperfections to the back
of our mind. So we
love to accuse other
people of the very
things that we know
deep down are the
same flaws that we
have. As a nation we need
to be satisfied by demonising certain types of criminals who become our national hate figures. It makes
us feel righteous and clean.
To refuse to forgive another
person is an extraordinary
thing yet one which we often hear from those who
feel wronged. It’s tantamount to saying that they
have harmed us and we
it usually happens that
someone who is deeply
aware of their own defects
is also acutely aware of
how much they are in need
of God’s love and presence, that presence which
is stronger than all of our
sin. The more we live lives
that recognise our dependence on God’s love and
forgiveness, the easier we
find it to pass on the for-
giveness that has first been
shown to us. We don’t forgive out of our own store of
forgiveness but out of
God’s.
W
hen Jesus went
out to the Pharisee’s home for a meal he
had his feet anointed by a
weeping woman who gatecrashed the dinner.
She had a reputation
in the town and it
wasn’t a good one.
Jesus cleverly pointed out that the great
love she showed him
would be impossible
if she had not experienced forgiveness in
her life. Strangely it
was the religious
people who had difficulty
forgiving her. Maybe they
had kept the rules and felt
better than her, and in no
need of God’s forgiveness?
Our “trespasses” are only
forgiven to the same degree that we forgive those
of others. How forgiving are
you? Your answer will tell
you a lot about how much
you have experienced
God’s love.
