THERE WILL BE NO WEEKDAY MASSES UNTIL MAY 29TH

AS FATHER AL WILL BE AWAY FOR HIS FATHER’S FUNERAL

 

«Let us pray that our families be in the world a visible sign of Your love; grant spouses the grace to build up a true, patient and humble love. Do grow in the heart of children and youth trust in their parents and a desire to conform their lives to Your will.»

Social Reflection: The family has always been the locus where are built faithful and deep love relationships. Parents decide to be faithful to their commitment to build love relationships … make efforts and surpass themselves for everyone’s self-fulfilment, attend one another, share and be true to oneself, help and support each other in happy days as well as in days of adversity, and, as an inescapable requirement, forgive each other… Such deep desire brings us back to our own identity, to who we are: beings created in the image of God, out of love and for love.

 An answer for our faith: Pope Francis in «Amoris Laetitia» talks about love which becomes manifest and grows. «The love of friendship unifies all aspects of marital life and helps family members grow constantly... This love must be freely and generously expressed in words and acts...» «In the family, three words need to be used. I want to repeat this! Three words: ‘Please’, ‘Thank you’, ‘Sorry’. Three essential words!» «In our families when we are not overbearing and ask: ‘May I?’; in our families when we are not selfish and can say: ‘Thank you!’; and in our families when someone realizes that he or she did something wrong and is able to say ‘Sorry!’, our family experiences peace and joy».  In our Christian families, do we put up words and acts which help such growth in love? Questions to be added
