Hope all’s well.
Just a reminder that the church is open today 12 noon until 3pm fir private prayer.
If you’re free to call in for a short visit, please, remember, bring your face covering.
There will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
It’s always good when we get the opportunity to come before Christ who is always there in the Blessed Sacrament.
‘It is comforting to be in the company of a dear friend. In the Blessed Sacrament we can easily converse with Jesus, our friend. It is as if he says, “I am here to console you”’
Adapted words of St Alphonsus Liguori.
He is there waiting for a heart speaking to heart.
He hears us. He sees us.
He knows our cares, our needs, our desires. He waits for us to come before him.
If you can, even just for a few moments, call in to the church today for quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. It’s good to get that knee time.
Coming before the Blessed Sacrament enables us to make contact with God.
If you are not free to pop in for a visit, there is live online Perpetual Adoration from Tyburn Convent. Just to sit in prayerful silence for even just five minutes is lovely and peaceful and calming.
With 10am weekday Mass starting back this Monday, July 20th, and being live streamed, please note next Wednesday’s private prayer time will be reduced from 2pm - 3pm.
Here's some helpful guidance from the Bishops' Conference of Scotland if you are thinking of coming along to Mass next week.
Would be good if you could familiarise yourself with it ahead of attending Mass.

And, finally, our sincere thanks to Monsignor for his poetry reflections during lockdown. I know they have been very much appreciated by many of you. Today’s is Monsignor’s final one, with us now moving into our new normal.
Hope you have a good day.
