Special Dates

16th St’s Cornelius and Cyprian
20th Sts Andrew Kim Tae-gon
21st St Matthew 
In the third century St Cornelius was a Pope who was arrested and banished. Roman emperor Decius thought that if Christians lost their leader, the religion would die. There are now over 2 billion Christians in the world today and more than 50% of those are Catholic. Unfortunately like in the 3rd Century, Christians today are still persecuted and amongst the most persecuted people in the world.
Christians are persecuted in more that 50 countries and are harassed in up to 144. Please pray for all people of faith and help stop the intolerance.

CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME 
THE SEASON OF CREATION helps us reflect on and appreciate more fully God’s call to oneness with all Creation; to be true Kaitiaki/Guardians of the earth and it's creatures. As Kaitiaki, environmental issues cannot be peripheral to our Christian beliefs.  To take environmental issues seriously we must undertake a conversion - an ecological conversion, which involves a change in our lifestyles.

DID YOU KNOW: UN Sustainability Development Goal No 13 calls for world-wide and urgent climate action. As followers of Christ we are called at this time in history, to be at the forefront of this crusade. Together we make the difference by being the change we wish to see!
Spiritual Reading
The most potent and acceptable prayer is the prayer that leaves the best effects. I don't mean it must immediately fill the soul with desire. The best effects [are] those that are followed up by actions-----when the soul not only desires the honor of God, but really strives for it.
--St. Teresa of Avila
Praise the Lord our God; worship before his throne! Holy is he!
Have a blessing week

Thank you
God Bless
