28th Sunday Ordinary Time 9th October 2016
Responsorial Psalm:
The Lord has shown his
salvation to the nations.
Gospel Acclamation:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Your words are spirit Lord,
and they are life; you have
the message of eternal life.
Alleluia!
WORD FOR TODAY
When the lepers encountered Jesus
it transformed their lives, though only one came back to say thank you.
Do we recognise the transforming
presence of God in our daily lives
and , if we do, what do we have to
thank God for?
Let us pray for the Sick

FAITH IN FOCUS:
THANKFUL
W
e say “thank you”
hundreds of times
a week. Sometimes we
really mean it and sometimes it just slips out as an
easy way of coping with the
miscellaneous social comings and goings of our everyday life. It can also be a
way of not getting involved.
Every language has
its own way of saying thank you. In
English the word
“thank” is linked to
“think”. It originally
meant to think
thoughts of gratitude.
Spanish and Italian
a ckn o w le d g e a
g ra ce re ce ive d
(gracias/grazie);
French emphasises something for which to be thankful (merci) whereas the Portuguese recognise that
thanksgiving is an obligation (obrigado). Unsurprisingly, we sometimes speak
about being “obliged” to
someone or being thankful
for “small mercies”.
FOR SMALL MERCIES?
gious outcast who came
back to say thank you. If
you read St Luke’s text
you’ll find that he came
back shouting thank you at
the top of his voice, with the
same intensity that presumably he had asked Jesus to
take pity on him. Could this
be Luke’s way of pointing
you said “grace” before you
ate a meal. We’re taught to
say thank you to others but
we seem to forget about
God. It’s a bit like the little
boy who was given an orange by his aunt. His mother asked him, “And what
did you say?” “Peel it” said
the child.
F
or the Christian,
thanks is not
simply a word; it’s a
way of living, an attitude of gratitude.
Thanksgiving comes
from our close relationship with God; it’s
the natural reaction to
seeing what God is
doing for us day after
day. It’s not so much a
out the complementary na- polite response as a state
ture of petition and praise in of mind.

Thank you all so much for your generous
support. Your generosity means that more
families will have the materials and training they need to grow enough food, and
hopefully the children become healthy
enough to benefit from education.
Thanks again for your ongoing support
and prayers.

The Fair trade shop is up and running
again at the back of church. We have the
usual items of tea, coffee, sweets, chocolate, biscuits, dried fruit and sugars
amongst other things. There are catalogues available, we will happily order
Christmas cards and other goods for you.
The Fair trade mark means that the producers get a guaranteed price for their
goods. They also get a premium that allows them to grow their businesses and to
fund projects for the good of their communities.
