A note on Reconciliation (Confession) Taken from "Christ, The Life of the Soul" - Book Two:  The Sacrament and the Virtue of Penance: "Never forget, then:  every time you receive this sacrament [confession] worthily, with devotion, even if there are only venial sins to confess, the blood of Christ flows in abundance upon your soul, so as to vivify it, make it strong against temptation, render it generous in the struggle against attachment to sin; and so as to destroy in it the roots and the effects of sin.  The soul finds in this sacrament a special grace for uprooting vices and purifying itself more and more; for regaining the life of grace or increasing that life within itself." author:  Blessed Columba Marmion [contributed from IIPG] | Reconciliation page

"Without God's Son nothing could exist; without Mary's Son, nothing could be redeemed." ~ St. Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury (1033-1109)

‘My house shall be called a house of prayer
Please remember
: Talk to God when you come in. Talk to each other on the way out. Be sensitive to those who want to pray in quiet, all unnecessary talk outside the church.I know it is not easy, but we do come first for the worship of Almighty God. Fr. Philip

Before Mass: Talk to GodDuring Mass: Listen to God - in today’s world, remember to switch off your mobile phone & to switch on (open up) your heart and mind:  After Mass: Talk to each other - refreshments available after some Masses - all our visitors will be very welcome too smilie
