Parish Priest - Father Anton's Weekly Column

23rd January - Year C

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

This week is Christian Unity week and we remember along with the theme of Peace, the need for Unity especially amongst Christians. Long gone are the wars between the different factions of Christianity and so harmony, the unity of Christ’s love needs always to shine through. Let us pray for the Unity of Christ throughout the whole world.

Also I offer a prayer that is well worth memorising, a prayer of St Myriam Baouardy, Holy Spirit, inspire me. Love God, consume me. In the right path lead me. Mary, my Mother, watch over me. With Jesus bless me. From all evil, all illusion, all danger, preserve me.

Please keep in your prayers Brian White whose funeral service took place this week and also Michael Somers who died last weekend. May they rest in peace! Please also pray for their family and friends!

God bless and stay safe!

Father Anton s.c.j.
