On behalf of all at The Graan we wish Thomas and Madge every blessing they would wish for themselves. May God reward them both.

 

Feasts of the week: Tues - St Cyril. Wed is St Irenaeus. His name means lover of peace. Many Christians were being put to death so he taught that Christianity was about love and forgiveness not retaliation. “The Glory of God is a human being fully alive,” he said. Thurs - Sts Peter and Paul.. They were the founders of the Church in Rome. Both were executed for their faith. Peter was crucified and Paul was beheaded. Fri – First Martyrs of the Church of Rome.

 

JULY READERS AND MINISTERS: It’s important during the summer that all readers and ministers are present for the Masses they have been assigned to. If for some reason you can’t be here please do all you can to ensure a substitute stands in for you.

 

Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister writes in her new book Radical Spirit: 12 Ways to Live a Free and Authentic Life: "Humility is the virtue of liberation from the tyranny of the self. Now we have bigger things to be about in life than personal aggrandizement. The humble, no matter how great, do not spend their lives intent on controlling the rest of their tiny little worlds. On the contrary, once we learn to let God be God, once we accept the fact that the will of God is greater, broader, deeper, more loving than our own, we are content to learn from others. We begin to see everyone around us as a lesson in living.

Motorist Prayer:Grant me a ready hand, a watchful eye, that none may suffer hurt as I pass by / You gave us life, I pray no act of mine may take away or mare that gift of thine / Guard those, dear Lord, who bear me company, from fools and fire and all calamity / teach me to use my cars for others’ needs, nor miss, through lack of wit, or love of speed / the beauties of your world. That thus I may with joy and courtesy go on my way now and in eternity. Amen.
