Repent – The Kingdom of God is Close:

 

There is an urgency in the teaching of John the Baptist in this Sunday’s Gospel. We cannot and we must not put our repentance and the Confession of sin on the long finger. The number one sin is idolatry; worshiping ourselves and the things we have made. Let us ask ourselves, how much time do we spend on our phones? How much time do we spend listening to music, to the radio, watching television and operating our computer? How much time do we on our happy and physical exercise? Then we ask ourselves, how much time do we give to God in worship and prayer? Let us be honest: do we really love the Creator and Saviour with all our heart, soul and mind? Idolatry is the sin of our time and it is destroying us, our families and the world we live in. Isaiah the Old Testament prophet in Chapter One, asks us to reflect on this and promises us that though our sins we as red as scarlet, God is prepared to wipe them away, if we repent of them. As we enter the 2nd week of Advent 2016, let us lessen the time we give to the things our hands have made and increase the time we give to God the Creator. Let us fall in love with Him again, the maker of all things and thank Him for everything with grateful hearts. This is the call of John the Baptist today.

 

 

Pope Francis to visit us!

 

Many of us remember the visit of Pope John Paul II, 37 years ago, September 1979. What an exciting prospect it is that our present Holy Father will walk among us again in two years’ time. We must prepare ourselves and our families, to make this a very special time. WE have nearly two years to prepare for August 2018 and the gathering from all over the world, to reflect on the importance of family. Let us all pray and stir up our Catholic faith once again.
