Welcome to Our Lady of Hope

There are many messages in today’s Gospel: the power of God to heal, the compassion of Jesus for those in need, the fact that a despised foreigner (the Samaritan) is the only one who recognises what has been done, the role of faith and the importance of thanking God for gifts received. But because this Gospel is twinned with part of the story of Naaman the leper, the idea that the Church brings out most clearly is that of thanksgiving, or acknowledging what has been given to us. From an early age we are taught to say “Thank You” – to recognise that someone has gone out of their way to give us something or do something for us. Our thanks strengthens the relationship that binds us together, and it is the same with God. As we recognise the good things that come from God, so our faith is deepened and the bond of the Covenant in Christ Jesus is strengthened.

Marriage Matters

Marriage Matters: Healing miracles in our marriage: He is there! God knows we need healing! Daily He performs, through the Holy Spirit, large and small healing ‘miracles’. When we look carefully and sensitively at what happens in our marriages, we can detect God alive and active within us. As we learn to choose to cooperate with His grace and mercy, He becomes evident in our lives. Let’s always thank Him.


The God Who Speaks

Scripture is at the centre of everything the Church does. The word of God shapes our prayer and worship. The Bible shows us how to understand the world, how we are called to live and relate to each other. 2020 is the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’ and the 1,600 anniversary of St Jerome’s death. These dates have inspired the Catholic Bishops’ Conference to dedicate 2020 as a year of focus on the Bible and ‘The God Who Speaks’.
