the weekend again

Jun 26, 2010

It is the end of the second week of the six week programme. The time is passing quickly. Tomorrow it is my turn to celebrate Mass for the community: I will offer this Mass for the parishes of St Therese of Lisieux, Chatham Islands, Our Lady of Victories Sockburn, for those whose prayer intentions we carried on the OLV pilgrimage, and for all those who visit this blog.

As you might imagine it is a bit of a challenge to celebrate the Mass, and to lead Morning and Evening prayer for a community whose sole reason for existence is to focus on the celebration of the Liturgy. I have been well prepared by our Sunday celebrations of the Mass at OLV.

Time for bed
John
