    “To Lay Down His Life For His Friends” 

    “You are my FRIENDS”

    Maundy Thursday – a night never to be forgotten – tomorrow he will be dead.

    “Love One Another”  And He Loved us To Death!

    News Headlines:  “Mother killed saving her child”

    Gospel Headlines:  “Jesus killed saving his People”

     

    Jesus always taught by example –

    On his knees with a basin and towel washing their feet!

    On a cross his arms outstretched!

    “Love One Another As I Have Loved You”

    IT REALLY IS INCREDIBLE!  WE ARE HIS FRIENDS.

    MAHATMA GANDHI

    A sad indictment

    “I love you Christ but not your Christians because you are so unlike your Christ”

     

    ARCHBISHOP OSCAR ROMERO

    (Murdered in his own cathedral and soon to be canonised)

    “How I would like to engrave this great idea on each one’s heart; Christianity is NOT a collection of truths to be believed, or laws to be obeyed, or prohibitions.  That make it very distasteful.  CHRISTIANITY IS A PERSON WHO LOVED US SO MUCH, WHO CALLS FOR OUR LOVE.  CHRISTIANITY IS CHRIST”

     

    THE SALVATION ARMY

    They really do practice what they preach.  Their love, care and concern for others is their motto. 

    And their favourite hymn?  “WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS”

    Yes, we have yet a lot to learn!

    And to end on a lighter note!

    LOVE ONE ANOTHER

    “Their marriage is a wonderful partnership – he’s the silent partner”!!!

    Usher at a wedding, “Are you a friend of the groom?”  “Certainly not, I’m the bride’s mother”!!

    “My husband has only ONE fault; he can’t do anything right”!!!

    “If I was your wife I’d put poison in your tea”  “Madam, if I were your husband I’d drink it”!!!

    “My dog was my only friend.  I told my wife that every man needs at least two friends.  She bought me another dog”!!!

    LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I.................!!!

    THANK YOU FATHER PATRICK – YOU ARE A GEM!!!!
