FROM FR TIM
As I review the past ten months, it seems as though we have been living in a dream world. I am sure many of you are having similar experiences: waking up in the morning and wondering whether it really is all happening. At the same time, as I have been trying to convey in the recorded messages and Masses, I remain hopeful and encouraged at the way together we have worked our way through the challenges thus far.
I am hoping the latest development, namely the decision to depend again on that sense of being united by daily prayer at 7.00pm (if possible) and celebrating the Sunday Mass online will sustain us until we can emerge into a new vaccinated world, where the restrictions can be substantially lifted. Certainly, the vaccination process seems to be moving. I know a good number of people in different parts of the country who have already received doses of vaccine and already one member of our Redemptorist community has been called for his injection this coming Monday. Hopefully, all of us in the ‘at risk groups’ will be cared for in the timescale proposed by the Government. Meanwhile, let’s pray for patience and the wisdom to continue to follow all the practical advice that will enable us to avoid adding to any spread of the virus.
NO MONASTERY RECEPTION COVER
There will is no reception cover at the monastery, please do not call at the monastery.
Any enquiries, requests etc should be emailed to the parish office where possible or posted through the door and will be dealt with as soon as practical.
We still need to protect the vulnerable community. Thank you
AN INVITATION TO PRAYER
We have asked that in all our homes we set aside a sacred space where the family could pray, if possible, at 7.00pm each evening At the heart of the prayer will be an Act of Spiritual Communion, so dear to the heart of our Founder, Saint Alphonsus. The leaflet is available on our website, the prayer has been converted so that it is easily understood by the younger ones, but here is the original:
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to possess you within my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as being already there and unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.
The Redemptorist Community has adjusted the daily timetable so that we will be united in prayer with you all at that time. Also, each day we will celebrate Mass and hold all your intentions before the Lord.
