Responsorial Psalm: The just will live in the presence of the Lord. Gospel Acclamation: Alleluia, alleluia! Open our heart, O Lord, to accept the words of your son. Alleluia! Celebration Mass We will be celebrating the many successes and achievements of the year on Tuesday 19th July at 9.15am in St David’s Mold. In addition, to saying goodbye to our Year 6 pupils, we will be marking the retirement of Mrs Peover, who has given 25 years of teaching to St David’s. A farewell goes to Miss Cousins, who will be taking up a teaching post in Dubai. All are welcome. Mr. Hughes Farewell and Thank you Next Sunday (24th July), we will say “Farewell” to the Morris family and to Sheila and Bob Naybour. We thank them for being part of our parish community and for their generous service and involvement . Tea/Coffee will be served in the Hall after the Mass, so that we can thank them and say our “Goodbyes”. We wish them every blessing in the future. People expect us to be busy, overworked. It’s become a status symbol in our society: if we’re busy we’re important; if we’re not busy, we’re embarrassed to admit it. Busyness is where we get our security. It’s validating, popular and pleasing. It’s also a good excuse for not dealing with the first things in our lives.

When first meeting a person we often ask “What do you do?” And we seem to be impressed by how busy they are. Somebody with a full diary, with a frenetic lifestyle and a backlog of texts on their mobile phone is considered a success. To have no time is thought of as a status symbol. But we may still not know who we are. If we always respond to the urgent, we may end up missing the essential. By keeping busy we can easily stave off what we know we should really be doing. Where we set our priorities often says more about how we would like to be thought of than it does about who shown the basic courtesies. we really are. Maybe she’d got into the It’s easy to hear the epi- habit of doing everything in sode about Jesus visiting the kitchen and then feeling Martha and Mary and to sorry for herself and blamcome out on Mary’s side. ing others? She wouldn’t be She was the one who sat the first! and talked while Martha was going frantic in the kitchen. The gospel tells us that Martha was “distracted” by all the work that had to be done for the meal and the entertaining. But both Martha and Mary were needed. The guest did not come just for food but for company too. Mary played her part by entertaining Jesus and by allowing herself to be enriched as she listened to what he had to say. Martha’s role was to get everything just right so that the meal would go without a hitch. It might be a bit harsh to say that the whole occasion smacked of devotion on Mary’s part and of duty on Martha’s. But what is certain is that Martha allowed herself to be “distracted” by important things that could have waited until she’d In our relationship with God, do we feel that we have always got to be doing something? Always active, proving our love of God? A faith without any sign of good works would be a lazy one. But if we never slow down enough to talk to God, to rest in God’s presence and to listen for what God is trying to tell us, then we will end up running on very low batteries. And we might find that what we thought was crucial just turns out to be a way of distracting ourselves and avoiding God. Journey of Faith 2016/17 ‘Come and See’ Are you or someone you know interested in learning more about the process of entering the Catholic Faith? Come and learn why Catholics do what they do and what Catholics believe about God, church and family life in Christ. We start our new sessions during the first week of September on Monday evenings starting at 7.30pm in the Parish Library. Registration forms are available at the Flint parish office or from your parish priests. This programme is open to every parish in the deanery. Fr. Adrian Wilcock (Dean) Email: [email protected] Telephone: 01352732245 After considering your family and friends in your will, why not think of leaving a gift to the family of the Church? It is a way of thanking God for the blessings you have received during your life and a wonderful way of helping to ensure that the faith and values we cherish will be carried on for future generations- your children, grandchildren and beyond. Your gift could be specified to be used for general purposes at the discretion of the parish priest ( or the bishop if it is given to the diocese). Making the ultimate gift will be as simple as asking your advisor to include a statement such as : 'I GIVE [THE SUM OF £ — / MY RESIDUARY ESTATE] to St. David's Catholic Church, Mold (or if you would like to give to the diocese: to Wrexham Diocesan Trustees Registered) to be applied as to both capital and income for the general charitable purposes of the Parish ( or Wrexham Diocesan Trust (Charity Number 700426) AND I REQUEST without imposing any binding trust or legal obligation that the same shall be used for such purposes within St. David’s, Mold or at the discretion of the parish priest AND I DIRECT that the receipt of the Parish Priest shall be sufficient discharge to my Executors.
