The central theme of today’s readings is an invitation to us to become humble instruments of healing in Jesus’ hands by giving voice to the voiceless and caring love to the needy and the marginalized in our society.   The readings also invite us to open our ears to hear the Word of God and to let our tongues be loosened by the Holy Spirit to convey the Good News of God’s love and salvation to others.


All notices for the Newsletter to be left in by 5.00p.m. on Thursdays please.
