Mass on August 2nd

 

There are a number of places which are kept for those unable – for whatever reason –  to book, but it is better and safer  to book. The Pastoral Council and I would regret any disappointments.
If necessary we will organise another Mass but meantime we are sticking t0 the usual Saturday Vigil Mass at 6.00p.m. and Sunday Morning Mass at 10.30.

Liturgy of the Word

Isaiah 55:1-3 ©

Come and eat

Thus says the Lord: Oh, come to the water all you who are thirsty; though you have no money, come!
Buy corn without money, and eat, and, at no cost, wine and milk.
Why spend money on what is not bread, your wages on what fails to satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and you will have good things to eat and rich food to enjoy.
Pay attention, come to me; listen, and your soul will live.
With you I will make an everlasting covenant out of the favours promised to David.

Psalm 144: The Lord is loving, the Lord is kind.

The Lord is kind, full of compassion, slow to anger, abounding in love.
How good the Lord is to all, he shows compassion.   The Lord is good to all his creatures.
The Lord is loving, the Lord is kind.

The eyes of all creation look to you, and you give them food that they need.
All creatures thank you, O Lord, your friends shall bless you, The Lord is good  to all his creatures.
The Lord is loving, the Lord is kind.

 The Lord is just in all his ways, he is loving in all his deeds;
the Lord is close to all who call on him.  The Lord is good to all his creatures.
The Lord is loving, the Lord is kind.

 

Gospel
Matthew 14:13-21 ©

The feeding of the five thousand

When Jesus received the news of John the Baptist’s death he withdrew by boat to a lonely place where they could be by themselves. But the people heard of this and, leaving the towns, went after him on foot. So as he stepped ashore he saw a large crowd; and he took pity on them and healed their sick.

  When evening came, the disciples went to him and said, ‘This is a lonely place, and the time has slipped by; so send the people away, and they can go to the villages to buy themselves some food.’ Jesus replied, ‘There is no need for them to go: give them something to eat yourselves.’ But they answered ‘All we have with us is five loaves and two fish.’ ‘Bring them here to me’ he said. He gave orders that the people were to sit down on the grass; then he took the five loaves and the two fish, raised his eyes to heaven and said the blessing. And breaking the loaves handed them to his disciples who gave them to the crowds. They all ate as much as they wanted, and they collected the scraps remaining; twelve baskets full. Those who ate numbered about five thousand men, to say nothing of women and children.
