22nd Sunday of the Year – 30th August 2020
To follow Christ is inevitable to suffer. But there are great rewards too.
Without God, we can do nothing.
Let’s turn to God NOW, asking pardon for our sins. i.e. failures and the strength in weaknesses.
Jesus says unless you take up your Cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple.
The Cross in the New Testament means that suffering which comes into our lives because of the choices we have made for the Kingdom.
There is a way of losing by gaining.
You can win an argument but lose a friend.
Through competition and promotion, I may advance in my profession, but in terms of relationship, I am impoverished.
My energies are so focused on efficiency and success, that I haven’t time to grow emotionally and to develop my capacity for relationships.
In ones drive to attain power a person may sacrifice friendship and loyalty so much so that one could end up alone.
Lord, let me never forget your haunting words:-
“What good will it do to you to gain the whole world if you lose your soul?”

A message from Fr Eugene
I hope you are all well in the family of St Patrick’s.
You are always in my thoughts and prayers and I hope and pray that the Good Lord will keep us safe.
May we use this period of containment to reflect and pray for all the world and remember those who still have to work to keep us safe.
Hopefully at this time people will take the opportunity to remind themselves of what is really important; health, family, friends and helping others and may we think of the people and things we sometimes take for granted.
Stay strong, stay positive and most of all, stay safe.
I will endeavour to keep you all updated on this website so please keep checking.
Fr. Eugene McGillycuddy
