Jottings from the Vicarage - April  2015

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

May I wish you all a very ‘Happy and Blessed Eastertide’

 Those of us who have spent the last six weeks studying and observing Lent, with all the self-sacrifice which the Lenten period demands, will now I hope, be celebrating the joy of the glorious Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 

 From Passiontide to Palm Sunday and through to Easter Day, we are able to celebrate the highs and lows of the final week of Jesus’ life as a human being. The glorious entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the preparation of the ‘Upper Room’ by those who had accompanied Jesus on this his three year mission. All culminating in the sharing of a meal, which would for us, become the centre of our Christian worship. Jesus, who washes the feet of his followers. Jesus, who presides at the ‘Last Supper’ with his friends. The Jesus who instructs us to “Do this in remembrance of me”. His body and blood given freely for us. How important is this act to you today?

Have we shared the journey to the Cross during Holy Week?  Or have we taken the easy option of just attending on Easter Day?

There are many people who still sadly do not understand the implications of being a Christian. Those who still see their faith as Sunday only! Those who think that once a week is enough to get you into heaven. Well brothers and sisters, we need to be aware that when our lives finally end, there will be two peoples waiting to greet us. One will be our Lord and Saviour, the other will be Satan.

 The only thing which should concern us is this, which one of them will say to us, “Your mine”.  Are we doing enough in this life to ensure that Christ will say to us, “Welcome thou good and faithful servant”. Or do we need to look at ourselves and say yes Lord, I need to be trying a lot harder?

As Priests we are trained in theological colleges that the most important thing for us in our ministry, is the ‘cure of souls’. It’s all about ensuring that those who are given to us to care for in Christ’s name, hear His Word and live the Christian life. Thus, ensuring our safe passage from this life, to the life eternal. At Eastertide, all our hope and aspirations for the future should come to the fore.

I pray that you may all receive God’s blessing and his promise of eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Alleluia, alleluia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia! May God bless you all,

                                                                                       Fr. Harry.
