It is good to be able to send the Newsletter and Readings for Holy Mass to you. The Gospel reading this weekend is a reminder that Thanksgiving is a gift from Almighty God to ourselves, and one that we can – if we think to do so – return to Them, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Mass is the highest act of thanksgiving we can offer. As it is celebrated this weekend, may all of us return thanks to God for so much of what we take for granted, whether that is the people who populate our lives, our surroundings, work or times of relaxation. As a people who often ask so much in prayer, we may surprise ourselves and the God Lord by what we have to be appreciative of and can say ‘Thank you’ for!
With prayerful remembrance, kindest thought and affection.
As ever, Fr. Nicholas
