Jimmy Lutwama and the Sunday 10.30am by
one of the priests from St John Fisher.
understand St Theresa of Lisieux who said
that holiness is not about doing uncommon
things but is about doing common things
with uncommon holiness, or to put it
another way, it’s all about doing the next
thing the right way, not what we have t do
in a month’s time, but to do the very next
thing to the best of our ability.
Jesus was a ‘night person.’ We’re told in
God bless,
today’s gospel that “long before dawn, he
got up and left the house and went off to a
lonely place and prayed there.” We
sometimes think of prayer as a duty, or a
way of asking for God’s help but it is so
much more. In prayer we are united in Jesus

There is a lovely saying:
there are no coincidences,
only God-instances and at
any moment of time that is
where God is and that is
where we are. It is in the
present that we discover
the will of our Father in
heaven. Not what He wants
me to do tomorrow or next week or for the
rest of my life, but what He wants me to do
in this very moment, right now, here in the
present and it is this that helps us to

Our Parish Prayer.
Send forth your Spirit, O Lord, and rebuild the face of our parish family. Renew what is weary and worn, restore what
is old and stale; reclaim what has been lost. Fill us with your gifts; gifts to speak, gifts to love, gifts to heal, gifts to bind
up broken hearts and rebuild your people.
