Today’s liturgy confronts us with a question: are we pagans in practice, or do we believe and act as though God really loves and cares for us? In Isaiah’s prophecy God assures his people that they have not been forgotten. He loves them with a mother’s love, the strongest of human affections. God’s love is unconditional and unwavering. In the gospel Jesus pictures God as a father who provides everything his children need. They are not to be like pagans, excessively concerned about material possessions. We need to worry about one thing only, God’s interests, God’s kingdom. Then he will provide for us like a father and love us eternally like a mother. Detachment from things and attachment to God identifies us as Christians. St. Paul says that even the servants of the kingdom, Christ’s ministers, must not be concerned about how their ministry is humanly judged. God will determine what thanks they should be given. Christians must live as though they really believe in God’s love for them.


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.
