Gracious God, your
Son Jesus Christ
gave us the confidence
to call you Father. We believe you care for
us. We believe also
in the communion
of saints. With
confidence we ask
St. Jude, patron of
difficult cases, to pray
with us, for our
special intentions....
Thank you, God,
for hearing our prayer.

Child Protection Statement

Love Overcame by Julie Palmer

Jesus reminds us:
‘As long as you did it to one of these,
the least of my brothers or sisters, you did it to me.’

Somewhere at this moment a child is crying,
crying for love or maybe simply for bread.

Somewhere a young person is crying,
crying for a listening ear or an understanding heart.

Somewhere a deserted wife and mother is crying,
crying for the support of a husband or partner.

Somewhere parents are crying,
crying for a word from their children.

Somewhere people are crying,
for care, compassion, a smile,
a word of welcome, encouragement, recognition
for the basics of life, shelter.

John’s was a voice crying in the wilderness.
Lord, help us to listen to these voices
that may be around us and in our city.
Help us to listen to your voice telling us
that we are loved by the Father,
and that we are to love one another.
