Hi All,
I hope you are all keeping well during these very difficult and strange times. I can only ask you to ‘hold in there’. The days are getting longer and Covid is slowing easing again. Hopefully with the continued role out of the vaccines our lives will improve. It is good to see the schools opening and we might by continuing to be careful see the 5 km limit increase for all of us.

Thanks to all who continue to follow us in the Online Masses and your continued support morally and financially.

Next Friday is First Friday of March. I will do the visits as I did them in February, going to the door only and saying hello. I would like to think by my next visit in April that I will be able to give you the Body of Christ again. As the Frist Friday of April falls on Good Friday, I will do my calls on Holy Thursday or earlier in the week.
I would plan to do the Holy Week Ceremonies online via Facebook live as I did last year.

Meanwhile keep safe.
Regards and blessings.
Pat.

Prayer for those alone
‘Alone but not afraid’

I live alone, dear Lord, stay by my side,
in all my daily needs be Thou my Guide.
Grant me good health, for that indeed, I pray,
to carry on my work from day to day.
Keep pure my mind, my thoughts, my every deed,
let me be kind, unselfish in my neighbour's need.
Spare me from fire, malicious tongues
from thieves, from fear and evil ones.
If sickness or an accident befall
then humbly Lord I pray, hear thou my call.
And when I’m feeling low or in despair.
lift up my heart and help me in my prayer.
I live alone, Dear Lord, yet have no fear
Because I feel your presence ever near.

Family Prayer in time of pandemic

Lord Jesus Christ, you travelled through towns and villages “curing every disease and illness.”
At your command the sick were made well again.
Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of this virus, that we may experience your healing love. Lord, healer of all, stay by our side in this time of uncertainty and give us your peace.
In your mercy Lord, hear our prayer.

Sunday Readings - 28th February
First Reading
A reading from the book of Genesis.  
God put Abraham to the test. ‘Abraham, Abraham’ he called. ‘Here I am’ he replied. ‘Take your son,’ God said ‘your only child Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah. There you shall offer him as a burnt offering, on a mountain I will point out to you.’
When they arrived at the place God had pointed out to him, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood. Then he stretched out his hand and seized the knife to kill his son.
But the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven. ‘Abraham, Abraham’ he said. ‘I am here’ he replied. ‘Do not raise your hand against the boy’ the angel said. ‘Do not harm him, for now I know you fear God. You have not refused me your son, your only son.’ Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt-offering in place of his son.
The angel of the Lord called Abraham a second time from heaven. ‘I swear by my own self – it is the Lord who speaks – because you have done this, because you have not refused me your son, your only son, I will shower blessings on you, I will make your descendants as many as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants shall gain possession of the gates of their enemies. All the nations of the earth shall bless themselves by your descendants, as a reward for your obedience.’
The Word of the Lord.

Responsorial Psalm     
Response: I will walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the living.
                               
1. I trusted, even when I said:
‘I am sorely afllicted.’
O precious in the eyes of the Lord
is the death of his faithful.          Response

2. Your servant, Lord, your servant am I;
you have loosened my bonds.
A thanksgiving sacrifice I make:
I will call on the Lord’s name.    Response

3. My vows to the Lord I will fulfil
before all his people,
in the courts of the house of the Lord,
in your midst, O Jerusalem.       Response

Second Reading 
A reading from the letter of St. Paul to the Romans.
With God on our side who can be against us? Since God did not spare his own Son, but gave him up to benefit us all, we may be certain, after such a gift, that he will not refuse anything he can give. Could anyone accuse those that God has chosen? When God acquits, could anyone condemn? Could Christ Jesus? No! He not only died for us-he rose from the dead, and there at God’s right hand he stands and pleads for us.
The Word of the Lord.

Gospel  Acclamation           
Glory and praise to you, O Christ !
From the bright cloud the Father’s voice was heard
‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.’
Glory and praise to you, O Christ !

GOSPEL  
A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark.       
Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain where they could be alone by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became dazzlingly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them. Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. ‘Rabbi’, he said it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three tents, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what to say; they were so frightened. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and there came a voice from the cloud, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.’ Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus.
As they came down the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead. They observed the warning faithfully, though among themselves they discussed what ‘rising from the dead’ could mean.
The Gospel of the Lord.
