Are we Catholic and Convinced? We have the fullness of faith through the Church our Lord established and the Sacraments He entrusted to it.  Yet we only seem satisfied to celebrate milestones in our lives in the 50s and 100s? What about the fact that for two thousand over years our Church has stood tall and the gates of hell has no power to overcome it!  We should be proclaiming the victory won with all our might and vigor. Jesus is Lord! He is Risen and reigns supreme.

For unless we love the Lord with all our hearts, minds and soul.
For unless we honour, praise and thank Him.
For unless we spend time with Him through prayer and His Word.
For unless we forgive and love one another.
We have no part with Him.

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all that is, seen and unseen……………and the life of the world to come. Amen

First reading
1 Timothy 3:14-16

At the moment of writing to you, I am hoping that I may be with you soon; but in case I should be delayed, I wanted you to know how people ought to behave in God’s family – that is, in the Church of the living God, which upholds the truth and keeps it safe. Without any doubt, the mystery of our religion is very deep indeed:
He was made visible in the flesh,
attested by the Spirit,
seen by angels,
proclaimed to the pagans,
believed in by the world,
taken up in glory.

Gospel
Luke 7:31-35

Jesus said to the people: ‘What description can I find for the men of this generation? What are they like? They are like children shouting to one another while they sit in the market-place:
‘“We played the pipes for you,
and you wouldn’t dance;
we sang dirges,
and you wouldn’t cry.”
‘For John the Baptist comes, not eating bread, not drinking wine, and you say, “He is possessed.” The Son of Man comes, eating and drinking, and you say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.” Yet Wisdom has been proved right by all her children.’
