Thought for the day
Every so often, we catch a glimpse of the “something more” that God has in store for us. These fleeting experiences are to be treasured: the birth of my first child, falling in love, a sense of “being held” by God’s presence. Such experiences may help us approach the Transfiguration. Like all transcendent experiences, it is fleeting and yet it etches a memory and leaves a longing. What should we do? Practice listening to him. Be not afraid. We cannot always be “on the mountain” and yet what happens on the heights can help us on the lowlands of the everyday
 
Please pray for:
… the sick and Housebound of our parish
