"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle.
I just wish that he didn't trust me so much."
Mother Teresa
"Prayer is the laying aside of thoughts"
CE 399 Evagrius Pontius

"Why we do the things we do"
First Things First
The initial part of the Mass (The introductory Rites) is
an important time for gathering and preparation.
The entrance song helps to open the celebration, unite
us as a body and lead our thoughts towards the mystery of God's love which we have come to celebrate. The Priest's greeting (The Lord be with you) and the congregation's response (And also with you) affirms that Christ is present in our midst.
This is a time for focusing on the importance of the
opportunity to worship that lies before us.

Thanks to the producers of the Parish Newsletter for most of this message, and to Msgr Brian Walsh for celebrating Mass for us and engaging with Parishioners. Members may recall the earlier suggestion to go to events you would not normally attend, well, here are some
opportunities.
If you dont go to Mass often in the week, here are good reasons for a new habit :
St. Josephs School will be attending the 9am Mass on 5th February and there will be a Welcome Powhiri at the School at 9am on Friday 14th
February.
Sunday 16th February is a Parish/School Welcome Mass for Term 1.
On Sunday 9th February there will be a Tongan welcome at 9am for
Fr. Vince Onesi, our new Parish Priest for the Tararua Parishes. This is arranged by the local Tongan community.
This will be a great opportunity to engage with new people and reinforce a welcome to the Parish.

Charity at Christmas

David Dorey from St Joseph's Parish Dannevirke

For those of us over 21 (Maybe more than twice)
the commercialisation of Christmas can be a little difficult.
As Christians and Catholics we should remember our habits of good behaviour.
In 1 Corinthian we read:
"If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am … View more
For those of us over 21 (Maybe more than twice)
the commercialisation of Christmas can be a little difficult.
As Christians and Catholics we should remember our habits of good behaviour.
In 1 Corinthian we read:
"If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as a sounding brass or a
tinkling cymbal"
So we should be gracious as well as charitable, taking actions which help others over Christmas.
