Last Sunday’s gospel about the beatitudes taught us that the Christian life has radically different values from the world’s. Today Jesus tells his humble followers that they are to be like the salt (which is essential to life) and like beacons to the world. But they must remain faithful to Christ’s message if they wish to be saved, their good works done for God’s glory, not their own. In the midst of the world their lifestyle must witness to the life-bringing cross. St. Paul reminds us of the Corinthians, those seekers after wisdom, and how he had relied only on Christ crucified in his preaching. The power of God was shown in his weakness, not in the logic or eloquence of the his arguments. The psalmist pictures the attitude and deeds of the good person who is a sign to the world. Isaiah lists those good works; sharing our goods as a concrete sign of love for our brothers and sisters.


Does Jesus have the place of honour in your family’s heart and home? The Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus program can show you how to get started. What about a relationship with the Mother of Jesus?

Holy Eucharist – Transportation


Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.

Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
