The Thirteenth Sunday

The Church takes for today’s Epistle a passage from St. Paul’s Epistle to the Corinthians, the subject of which is faith in Jesus Christ, a faith which works by charity and which makes us, like Abraham of old, put our hope in this divine Redeemer.
For it is by this faith, manifested in good works and trust in God, that souls, covered with the leprosy of sin, are cured, as we are reminded in today’s Gospel.
The ten lepers, who in some sense stand for the transgressions of men against the Ten Commandments, see from afar their divine Healer, and put their trust in Him. “Master, have mercy on us.” Their faith issues in works, for when our Lord puts them to the test, telling them: “Go show yourselves to the priests,” they obey without hesitation and are cured on the way. But the cure is only confirmed in the case of one of them who returns to Jesus to express his thanks. “And one of them, when he saw that he was made clean, went back, with a loud voice glorifying God; and he fell on his face before His feet, giving thanks.” And Jesus said to him: “Arise, go thy way, for thy faith hath made thee whole.”
The Gospel narrative also foretells the rejection of the Jews who were ungrateful toward Him who came to cure them, while the Gentiles have been faithful. For among the ten lepers, nine were Jews and only one was not. The nine,” says St. Augustine, ” swollen with pride, thought they would humiliate themselves by giving thanks, whereas by not doing so they are reproved and rejected from the unity which exists in the number ten (there were ten lepers), while the only one who returns to give thanks is praised by the Church.

Feasts this week…

Pray for today’s martyrs…

Daily Missal

To accompany your worship why not invest in a St Andrew’s Daily Missal that contains ALL the Propers for ALL the Masses offered throughout the year? Several parishioners have bought copies already and this particular edition has been commended to the Holy Synod for approval.
The St Andrew’s Daily Missal also contains historical commentary and footnotes on the Feast days, devotions, prayers of preparation for before and after Mass as well as the Propers for Vespers for Sundays and major Feast days throughout the year. It also contains forms for Morning and Evening Prayer, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and Compline. It really is a treasury of devotion!
Look out for the Daily Mass posts with the page numbers given for each Mass in the Missal.

DIARY THIS WEEK

The Hub Volunteers

Wednesdays The Hub homeless drop in is closed this week and next! IF you can spare a couple of hours on a Wednesday morning or lunchtime when we reopen in August, why not pop along and lend a hand? The Hub takes place in the rear hall of the Congress Hall.

Conferences NEW series “Tradition” on Wednesdays

Continuing on Wednesdays after Holy Hour & Benediction, a new series of Conferences on Tradition. Each week Metropolitan Jerome will explain the nature of Tradition, how to identify and adhere to it today.

Discerning God’s will for my life…

CATECHISM CLASSES will continue THIS Saturday immediately following the end of the Mass there’ll be a quick break fast and class starts at 10am finishing at 11am. This is the perfect opportunity to invite enquirers to the Faith or come along yourself to revisit the basic tenets of Christianity.

The present series is exploring vocational discernment – what is God calling me to? How do I discover what God wants me to do? Why should I do what God wants?

Cuba Saturday School Project

The Primus of the Holy Synod, Metropolitan Jerome of Selsey has chosen the Saturday School project for our sponsorship. The monthly rent of the school building is $40 per month or approximately £30, we’d like to raise a year’s rent this Lent, approximately £360 almost $500 and perhaps a little more to contribute to materials and resources for the activities.

Please prayerfully consider contributing to this worthwhile cause, perhaps donating a month’s rent for the school building? Use the button below and be clear to make the donation for “Saturday School Cuba” when prompted. God bless you.

We have a passion to see the United Kingdom return to the Christian faith. Our nation has been shaped and defined by this faith for hundreds of years. Yet in the last few decades, the nation has largely turned her back on Jesus and embraced alternative ideas such as secular liberal humanism, moral relativism and sexual licence. The fruit of this can be seen in widespread family breakdown, immorality and social disintegration. https://www.christianconcern.com/
A Stop Christophobia campaign has been launched by Premier Christian Radio. The success of this campaign depends highly on the number of people who support it so please share this link with your contacts on social media and sign it yourself! There is currently a momentum building, but change won’t happen unless people stand up and be counted. Together we can ensure that Christian minorities are protected from discrimination and persecution.https://www.thestopcampaign.org/
This site is for everyone who is concerned about the social and medical ‘transition’ of children, the introduction of ‘gender identity’ teaching into schools and new policies and legislation based on subjective ideas of ‘gender’ rather than the biological reality of sex.
