Praying with the Pope in August 2018

That any far-reaching decisions of economists and politicians may protect the family as one of the treasurers of humanity.

Today’s Mass
Jesus upsets the Jews by telling them that they must eat his flesh and drink his blood.

Fr Tim is away this weekend.   Fr Paul Fletcher from the Jesuit community in Preston will celebrate the Masses on Saturday and Sunday.   Fr Paul is profoundly deaf, but he can lip read very well.   You will need let him see your lips so that he can work out what you are saying.   I am sure you will make him feel welcome.

 

Fr Tim away
Fr Tim will be away this week.   The Weekday Mass on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday will be replaced by Communion Services.   There will be no Benediction on Saturday afternoon.   Fr Tim returns on Monday 27th August.

 

Next Weekend
Fr Peter Brook from the Jesuit Community in Preston will celebrate the Masses next weekend.

Stonyhurst College will be holding a Food Festival from Friday to Sunday.   Please tell them at the gate that you are coming to Mass and you will not be charged admission.

Pope Francis visits Ireland
Pope Francis will be visiting Ireland to take part in the World Meeting of Families next weekend.
Half a million people are expected for his Mass in Phoenix Park. 
Two Irish Jesuits, currently in the noviciate in Birmingham, will be part of a group of 50 Jesuits who will greet the Pope.

 

What is the World Meeting of Families:
Every society, every person understands a universal bond. A bond that connects us:  Family.  We are sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers and sisters.
Family has its challenges.  It can also be the place where we share the greatest tenderness and joy.
The joy of love experienced by families is also the joy of the Church.    Our Catholic Church is a family of families.
Every three years the Church brings together the largest international gathering of families in the world. This year the gathering is taking place in Dublin. A place known for its long Christian heritage and for its welcome.
For centuries, Irish missionaries have travelled the world proclaiming the joy of the Gospel. Now we look forward to welcoming people from every corner of the world to our shores for the 2018 World Meeting of Families. 

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin added:
“The family is a central theme of the ministry of Pope Francis.  He produced a wonderful document Amoris Laetitia on the Joy of Love.  This is what we want to celebrate in the World Meeting of Families.  As Archbishop of Dublin, I am very pleased to have been asked to host this Meeting and to invite you to join with us in preparing for this event and hopefully also to come to Dublin to celebrate with families from all around the world.”
