Word of God 

How happy are the poor in spirit; theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

(Psalm 145:6-7.8-9.9-10,  29th January 2017)

Sunday Gospel Reflection: St Matthew's Gospel presents eight beatitudes. The beatitudes are the badges of a true disciple of Christ. The things they stand for are very beautiful: things such as peace, goodness, joy, love, gentleness, compassion, mercy and integrity. A person who lives according to the beatitudes is already living in the kingdom of heaven. Eternal life will merely be the full blossoming of a plant that is green with life.



Presentation of the Lord

On the feast of Presentation, we carry lighted candles to symbolize the light of the world, Jesus Christ. In presenting Jesus, the light of the world, in the church and to the hearts of the people, Mary, the Mother of God, became the model of burning love. She offered Jesus joyfully, knowing that Jesus would suffer and die, but she also knew that his sacrifice would bring salvation to all.
