GOSPEL REFLECTION

 

Here is a real image of discipleship in today’s gospel: to serve and to become small. Discipleship is not about position or importance or recognition or prestige; it’s about imitating Christ in the way we give our lives to others and in the way we reach out with love for others. But it’s also about ‘recognising’ God in those so easily overlooked – the child, the vulnerable, the weak, the seemingly insignificant, or unimportant, those ignored or forgotten. The disciple should have eyes to see the face of God revealed in those who can be so readily ignored. As communities we can be too quick to worry about who’s first or who is best or who’s the most important. As disciples we should be ready to see the face of God in those around us and serve them, reach out to them… but our lives should also reveal something of the face of God because of who we are and because of the loving, compassionate service we give.

‘DARE TO DREAM’

We continue our Diocesan journey this Autumn as we ‘Dare to Dream’ the future of our Diocese. Each new video and reflection will be available on the Friday before each Sunday. Week Beginning September 12th, 24th Sunday of Ordinary Time: features our own Fr Michael Healy

Taking this time to reflect will enable all of us to contribute more fully to the conversations that every deanery will be having to discern how we grow our parishes to be places of mission, serving the poor and responding out of our abundance to the needs of the local community and the wider world.

Mission Prayer

 

 

 

 

Father,

pour out you Holy Spirit upon our parishes
to deepen in us a thirst and passion for mission.

Grant that your gifts of faith, hope and love
will lead us in true discipleship,

so that the Good news of Jesus Christ

will find a home in our hearts

and open us to the needs of all.

Then, trusting in your Almighty power,

give us the desire and courage

to proclaim our faith in Him to a broken word.

Amen

 

St Bernadette – pray for us

St Dunstan – pray for us

St Pius X – pray for us

Sacred Heart of Jesus – we place all our trust in You
