Adventeweek2 8th - 14th Dec. 2019

2nd Week of Advent

The 2nd Sunday of Advent is Catholic Bible Sunday. 

 

Reflection for the second Sunday of Advent from Marriage Matters

(www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk)

Second Sunday of Advent (Isaiah 11:1-10      Romans 15:4-9    Matthew 3:1-12)

Advent – a new beginning for us?

Today, Isaiah talks about trust and Matthew focuses on forgiveness.  Advent is the opportunity to discover new ways to help our partner to trust us and to share themselves.  Our prayer can be that we drop our defences, become more vulnerable and have the courage to open ourselves to be able to really listen, to share and to change.

Marie Curie Lights to Remember Service

At the Metropolitan Cathedral from 6.00pm-6.30pm

At the service, you will be able to light a candle, take part in an evening of carols and readings and see the volunteer’s daffodil procession  followed by refreshments and mince pies.

Christmas can be a very difficult time of year for those of us who are remembering loved ones who have passed away. We hope that our service will be of some comfort to those people.

A special book, with names of all those remembered and messages to them, will be on view in the hospice chapel from mid-December throughout the festive period.   For more information call 0151 801 1412.

The Immaculate Conception (Genesis 3:9-15, 20 Ephesians 1:3-6, 11-12  Luke 1:26-38)

Chosen

God chose Mary to be the mother of His Son.  Her life was changed completely!  When we married, our lives were changed completely. We were no longer a single man and woman but a husband and wife, a couple! Two new titles and a new mission: to love and cherish each other for the rest of our lives.
