August 11, 2019 – Thoughts by Rev Kev

    Jesus says in today’s Gospel , ”Do not be afraid, For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.”

    One treasure in of our faith is the belief that the Church (the people of God, not a building) is the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ. As Catholics we are welcome to come to daily mass and especially the Sunday Liturgy to be renewed as those sons and daughters who by the Eucharist can recognize Jesus in our lives. If we think about our faith journey, Jesus is not just one more prophet like Abraham or Saint John the Baptist and not simply a spokesperson for God like Moses. Rather he is; “God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,” which we profess together in our Creed.

    At the Eucharist we gather to become that treasure as the Mystical Body of Christ. We pray that the offering of our parish gives us a chance to receive His loving mercy and through the Power of the Holy Spirit to transform us and leads us not to be afraid but be open to the mystery of our salvation.

    In this world many of our hearts ache to be in union with God especially through the Eucharist! Why not come to the Eucharist? I invite each of us to pray around the Eucharist table, so that we can be encouraged to confirm us to carry the Light of Hope into the World.
