Palm Sunday: Cut a piece of palm for your own home, choose a piece of whatever evergreen tree is in your garden. On Sunday in all Masses celebrated without a congregation in the diocese, the priests will pray a blessing on the piece of palm in every home. The original palm signalled the ordinary people honouring Jesus as he entered Jerusalem. Let your palm express your faith and hope in God amid the Covid 19 pandemic. The words of Jesus, “Come to me all you who labour and are heavy burdened and I will give you rest”. Let us pray for each other. Our Lady help of the sick, pray for us.   

Summer Time: Just a reminder clocks go forward this Sunday 28th March at 1am.

Reflection

Every act of humility involves dying to pride.
Every act of courage involves dying to cowardice.
Every act of kindness involves dying to cruelty.
Every act of love involves dying to selfishness.
And so the false self dies, and the true self, made in God’s image, is born and nurtured.
It is in giving that we receive, it is in forgiving that we are forgiven; and it is by dying that we are born to eternal life.
