Welcome to Our Lady of Hope

When we consider the Christian life, we often think in positive terms: peace, light, joy, goodness, life. And yet, as the Scriptures remind us today, that Christian life must be lived in the midst of a world which is filled with more negative terms: division, distress, cruelty and death. The words of the Gospel may appear shocking to us: Jesus says that he comes to bring “division, not peace”, and this seems totally contrary to the message of the Gospel! And yet, Jesus is not announcing his desire – of course he wants peace, not division – but showing his understanding of the world in which we live. He is inviting us to weigh up the cost of the Kingdom, a cost he was willing to embrace: as the second reading tells us: “... Jesus, for the sake of the joy which was still in the future, endured the cross...” Whatever weighs us down, let us endure and persevere, so that the fire of God’s love may blaze over the whole earth!

Marriage Matters

Marriage Matters: Our sacrament: a sign of grace:  When we married we entered into a Covenant of unconditional love, summed up in the vows we made to each other. By imitating Jesus’ unconditional love for his bride, the Church, we became a Sacrament – a sacred sign of God’s love for all to see. Living out our ‘life-style choice’ is made possible only by ‘the graces of the Sacrament’.
