Today's Bible Readings

 

The First reading from the book of Genesis shows us the mysterious figure of Melchisadek, priest of God Most High. Bringing forth bread and wine, and blessing Abraham, he is an Old Testament pointer towards Jesus Christ our true High Priest.

 

Second reading. St Paul gives us the earliest account in the New Testament of how Jesus instituted the Eucharist at the Last Supper.

 

In the Gospel, Jesus' miraculous feeding of the 5000 with 5 loaves and 2 fish, is a pointer towards his greater miracle of feeding of us in the Eucharist.

 

Fr Rajiv’s homily will be updated on https://castingfire.wordpress.com

Today is the Feast of Corpus Christi, the Most Holy Body of Christ,

when we give thanks for his presence in the Eucharist. At the end of the 11.30 am Mass there will be an outdoor Procession of the Blessed Sacrament, and Benediction will be given in the grounds of Larmenier Sacred Heart School next door. Our First Communion children of this year will be present to lead our thanksgiving.

Christian Marriage: a journey of healing

On Friday 29th September the Church celebrated the Great Feast of the Three Archangels: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. Can you identify them in the picture above?

 

Michael carries a sword in his hand to defend your marriage from the Devil who accuses us when we sin, lies to us about what makes us happy, and puts in our minds doubts about the love of God.

 

Gabriel carries a pregnant womb, the visible sign that every Word of God carries new life and can become flesh in your marriage, because ‘nothing is impossible to God’.

The third angel, in the middle, is Raphael, meaning ‘God’s healing’. This Angel carries the hand of a young man - called Tobias - and is walking with him towards the marriage with Sarah. Raphael is the Guardian Angel of Tobias and Sarah,and of EVERY married couple.

For marriage enquiries please contact the parish priest:
