All that came to be had life in him
And that life was the light of men
A light that shines in the dark
A light that darkness could not overpower.
As we begin the new year of 2021, for the vast majority of us, 2020 was a very difficult year to live through. However, it brought out a lot of goodness in people, and the gift of solidarity and care for the vulnerable. For those of us who lost loved ones, there was also grief and great sadness.
Our gospel offers us the guiding light of Jesus, the light of the world, who has made God known to us. He guides along the right path, no matter how often we might stray, because ultimately the light will overcome all darkness, hatred, violence, ignorance, poverty and ultimately death itself. That is the good news and the great call of the gospel, let us ask the Lord to make us attentive and awake to that call as prepare to begin our lives anew.
Thanks to all who have donated to the Church through our website. Your generous contributions help in the running expenses of the Church and are greatly appreciated, especially in this difficult time.
You can know donate online in three easy steps. For more details visit our website and click the red DONATE button.
Pray with Pope Francis
Pope’s prayer intention for January: At the service of fraternity
“When we pray to God following Jesus, we come together as brothers and sisters with those who pray according to other cultures, other traditions and other beliefs.
“We are brothers and sisters who pray.
“Fraternity leads us to open ourselves to the Father of all and to see in the other a brother or sister, to share our lives or to support, to love, and to know each other.
“The Church values God’s action in other religions, without forgetting that for us Christians, the wellspring of human dignity and fraternity, is in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
“We believers must return to our sources and concentrate on what is essential. What is essential to our faith is the adoration of God and love of neighbour.
“Let us pray that the Lord may give us the grace to live in full fellowship with our brothers and sisters of other religions and not fight each other, and praying for one another, open ourselves to all.”
