Chaplain's Message

Mark 12: 38-44

Jesus, the Scribes and the Widow


Dear Friends,

Today is Remembrance Day and we wear poppies to remember those who have died in wars and in service to our country. And we remember not just sad past events, death and destruction by war, but also we remember the promise of the fullness of Life in the future. During this whole month of November we are called as Christians to remember those who have gone before us like the fallen leaves of Autumn, marked with the sign of faith. We also believe that we can assist the dead by our prayers and especially at Mass we can help the departed souls so that they may be released from their sufferings.

This is based on the Church’s belief in the Communion of Saints: through our prayers and sacrifices we can help one another here on earth and those who are in Purgatory who are being purified of any sin and eagerly await the glory and shining splendour of the Resurrection. And every time we say, “Amen” in the Mass and when we receive the Eucharist we say “Yes!” to our share in the Resurrection of the Dead.
