FROM FR TIM
THE NOVENA FOR OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR: I am happy to report that I am having a wonderful time in Clapham. Demanding as it is to give four sessions each day, the response and encouragement of the community and the people is life-giving and I feel truly blessed. Furthermore, the weather is quite magnificent and I manage a couple of walks across the Common each day! Reports of the event in Liverpool are equally encouraging: may the Lord continue to bless all our efforts and may we all fittingly celebrate Mary’s Feast this coming Wednesday: A VERY HAPPY FEAST TO YOU ALL.

Adoremus National Eucharistic Pilgrimage & Congress 2018:
Eucharist is… Food for the Journey We might do well to take a moment to thank God for all that we have received, materially and in prayer. All that we have faced in our lives we did not face alone. Always God’s strength and God’s love were at work in our hearts even when, and perhaps especially when, we did not know it at all. We can pray for those for whom the journey is hard. But we can pray too that God’s strength and love will be at work in our hearts to make us bread broken for others, bringing the nourishment of God’s love to the weary and downcast.
Please check out all the posters in the porch for extra events, courses and information. Also, check out the parish website for many more links.

Pope Francis: Reflections on The Joy of Love (Amoris Laetitia)
Each week we will be providing an excerpt on the Pope's letter for you to read and reflect on. The reflections have been made available by the Archdiocese’s Adult Faith Formation department.
"Every family should look to the icon of the Holy Family of Nazareth."
(Amoris Laetitia 30)
The Holy Family is a model for families because whilst the Holy Family was a family with special grace it was also a family with trials and despite their many trials, the family remained faithful, loving and united. Every family has particular graces and blessings and every family also has difficulties and crosses. The story of the Holy Family is full of encouragement for those who struggle in life – especially in their family life – and it enables us to see that true riches lie within our relationships and not in our abilities and possessions.
This week pray to the Holy Family asking them to help your family persevere through their trials and to thank God for all the graces and blessings your family enjoys.

She buys the accessories from overseas and then takes a couple of months preparing the crushed rose petals, until ready for beading. Sister then hand assembles the beads, the chains and crucifix complete with their presentation box, they are so blessed! Sister produces these to help raise much needed funds for those in Bangladesh who have had their villages and churches destroyed by floods.
