Church News and Prayer Communication


This has been a year when we have sustained very many stresses strains and shocks to our families and our way of life. The lockdown is easing, but the continuing effects of the lockdown are continuing to make themselves felt. Many Community groups are not meeting and changing patterns of economic life are leading to a great many redundancies. Most recently, the effects of the lockdown have caused problems in the world of education. The Health Service is also having to work hard to recover. When a finely tuned and complex society faces the dislocations which we have faced this year, it is inevitable that the effects will continue for sometime. Much that we had regarded as unchanging and dependable has proved not to be so, and that can be unsettling for many people. We have discovered however, that some things are dependable. We have rediscovered the true worth of people. We have rediscovered the capacity of people to respond to the needs of others when they need help, both professionally and in families and communities. People have remained there for us.

In today's Gospel the disciples discovered the true worth of Jesus, their teacher, companion and friend. They realised that the love and compassion and truth that he displayed could only be divine. His humanity could only be described as divine humanity. Peter voiced their thoughts when he blurted out "You are the Son of the Living God." In Jesus we see that there's something divine about humanity. We also realise that the perfect human life we see in Jesus, in all its compassion, insight and love, can only come from God. In Jesus we see God living a human life. Jesus, therefore, holds out for us, too, the possibility of living human life more as it's meant to be.
