RESPONSORIAL PSALM: ‘Give the Lord glory and power.’

The following is Our Lady of Medjugorje's October 2nd, 2014 monthly message through Mirjana:

“Dear children, with motherly love I implore you, love one another. May there be in your hearts, as my Son desired from the very beginning, love for the Heavenly Father and for your neighbour in the first place — above everything of this world. My dear children, do you not recognize the signs of the times? Do you not recognize that all of this that is around you, all that is happening, is because there is no love? Comprehend that salvation is in true values. Accept the might of the Heavenly Father, love Him and honour Him. Walk in the footsteps of my Son. You, my children, my dear apostles, you are always gathering around me anew, because you are thirsty. You thirst for peace, love and happiness. Drink out of my hands. My hands are offering to you my Son who is the spring of clear water. He will bring your faith back to life and purify your hearts, because my Son loves pure hearts and pure hearts love my Son. Only pure hearts are humble and have firm faith. I ask for such hearts of you, my children. My Son told me that I am the mother of the entire world. I ask of those of you who accept me as such to help me, with your life, prayer and sacrifice, for all of my children to accept me as a mother—so that I may lead them to the spring of the clear water. Thank you. My dear children, as your shepherds offer you the Body of my Son with their blessed hands, always in your hearts give thanks to my Son for the Sacrifice and for the shepherds that He always gives you anew.”

The Deanery Justice and Peace Group is now meeting regularly and aims to keep parishes informed about issues of injustice and malpractice here and abroad that cry out to God for remedy.

The Justice and Peace Group can keep you informed, so please would you show your concern by providing your Email address to St Marks Parish representatives – Colin Hardy hardyfamilycoddenham@btinternet.com or Edwin Edwards edwin.edwards1 @talktalk.net
