There will be a meeting, open to all those who are interested, to reflect on the responses to our recent questionnaire and to select our parish representative for the Diocesan Synod.
The meeting will be held in the Fisher-More Hall on Monday 19 November at 7.00pm.
We will have an independent chairperson: someone who is not a parishioner but who has a wealth of experience.
Please remember the questionnaire arose from Pope Francis’s letter to“The People of God” and Fr Michael Brehl’s letter to the Redemptorists. Both are available via our website.
“Today we recognize that being able to forgive others implies the liberating experience of understanding and forgiving ourselves… We need to learn to pray over our past history, to accept ourselves, to learn how to live with our limitations, and even to forgive ourselves, in order to have this same attitude towards others”
Mother Mary Francis, a Poor Clare, wrote to her sisters once that the quickest way to “kill” charity is to be too hard on yourself. If you hold yourself to an unrealistic standard, you will do the same to others. Accept your own imperfections today with a laugh and a trusting prayer for mercy.
