Theme:  DISCIPLESHIP

COMMITMENT DEMANDS SACRIFICE

Becoming an Olympic champion!

Becoming a great musician or skilled surgeon!

Getting married and setting up a home!

Becoming a Priest!

Today's Readings sound harsh, shocking, even scandalous. But the message is simple -

THE REAL IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE DEMAND SACRIFICE.

So, then, true discipleship, following Jesus, demands sacrifice. It will not always be easy! It demands total commitment! So before you enrol consider the consequences!

ST. PETER AND ST. PAUL - TRUE DISCIPLES!

Following Jesus cost them their lives. Take heart,

PETER

"Leave me Lord, I am a sinful man".

"I don't know the man".

Yes a coward! But chosen to be head of the Church.

PAUL

"Saul, Saul, why are persecuting me?"

A fanatical Jew becomes the greatest Christian convert.

BOTH WERE MARTYRED IN ROME UNDER THE PERSECUTION OF NERO.

TOTAL COMMITMENT!

ALL THANKS TO AMAZING GRACE!

PS. "EVERY SAINT HAS A PAST AND EVERY SINNER HAS A FUTURE"!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR CLOSE NEIGHBOURS!

Next Wednesday, The Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, they celebrate their 60th Anniversary. Congratulations! Congratulations! Congratulations!

And on a lighter note, EURO 2016 HOWLERS!

"After a goal less first half, the score at half time is 0-0"!

"If they score they will win this game"!

"Without picking out individuals Christiano Ronaldo had a great game"!

"His left foot is one of his best"!

"I don't think they're as good as they are"!

"Some of these players never dreamed they'd be playing in a European

 Tournament - but here they are today fulfilling those dreams"!!!

"If we can stop hooliganism we can go a long way towards stemming this great tide of people not going to football matches"!!!

 

ENGLAND FOR THE CUP?!?
