The Advent Wreath

Originally posted on 27th November 2010
The Advent wreath is part of our long-standing Catholic tradition. However, the actual origins are uncertain. There is evidence of pre-Christian Germanic peoples using wreathes with lit candles during the cold and dark December days as a sign of hope in the future warm and extended-sunlight days of Spring. In Scandinavia during Winter, lighted candles were placed around a wheel, and prayers were offered to the god of light to turn “the wheel of the earth” back toward the sun to lengthen the days and restore warmth.

Scripture notes – 1st Sunday of Advent, C – 2nd December 2018

Well before our season of Advent begins, our world is surrounded by ads and other reminders of a commercialised Christmas season. The church, however asks us to spend the time reflecting on the mystery of Jesus’ Advent – meaning ‘coming to’ us –born as a human being.

A second theme of Advent is a reminder of a final end of this world, with the ‘Second Coming’ of Jesus. Thirdly, Jesus ‘comes to us’ whenever we are aware of his presence. Thus the Advent prayer is one we can repeat at any time: ‘Come, Lord Jesus.’ Continue reading Scripture notes – 1st Sunday of Advent, C – 2nd December 2018

Scripture notes – Christ the King Year, B – 25th November 2018

We close the liturgical year with reminders of ‘end time’ and an emphasis on Christ as the supreme power in the universe, symbolised in the words of an earthly ‘kingship’. That traditional title, however, needs to be understood differently than kings/queens/emperors we know from history. Not so many countries now have kings. The few remaining kings mostly no power to rule, their role is more ceremonial. Christ, raised from human death and joined to the Father, has instead all the power of divinity in the universe and his reign is one of justice and mercy and will last forever. In the Old Testament Psalms, God was often called ‘King’ and the allusion here is that Jesus as Son of God has that power.

Youth Sunday – 25th November – #JustOneFilter

No one thinks twice about altering an image before posting it on social media and we all filter the view of us that we present to the world or even to ourselves to fit in and ‘belong’. This World Youth Day, we want young people to hear the message that there is ONE filter that helps us stay true to ourselves, that helps us all to measure our lives in the right ways and present ourselves to others as we are. This is the filter of God’s Love. When we look at our lives through this filter we see ourselves and others as God does, as truly loved, valued, and significant, no matter what is going on in our lives. We want young people to know that they are works of art, masterpieces, lovingly created by a God who knows them and wants to be close to them. In the Gospel reading for the feast of Christ the King we hear that Jesus came to “testify to the truth” and that “Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice” (John 18:33-37). Many of our young people do not hear often enough the truth that God loves them, and that Jesus, King of the Universe, can transform their lives if they allow Him into their hearts.

World Day of the Poor

Pope Francis has asked the entire Catholic community to mark World Day of the Poor on Sunday 18th November. The theme for this year is ‘this poor man cried, and the Lord heard him’. This year Caritas Westminster is asking that you not only remember those in poverty in your prayers and but reach out in practical ways. More information, as well as a specially designed prayer card can be found in your parish.

Remembrance – Words and Music – Thank you

Following Remembrance Day and the 100th anniversary of the WW1 Armistice last weekend, we owe a huge thank you to Sue Hessel for putting together, with all those who read, played, sang, danced, accompanied and helped on Thursday evening, a wonderfully poignant and evocative remembrance through his letters home of the life of her uncle, a young RAF Airman until his death in action in 1944 interspersed with music, song and dance. Thanks also to the great number of people who came to listen and, by buying tickets, contributed funds for our building projects. Total raised so far £1402.35.

First Holy Communion 2019

Enrolment forms for the 2018/2019 program are still available from the Sacristy after Sunday Masses. Forms must be completed and returned by Sunday 18 November. Due to the building works taking place, we will be changing the class format, and will be offering classes on Saturday mornings only. There will be a parents’ information evening on Tuesday 27 November at 7:30pm in the church, where we will share full details of the 2018/2019 program. Note: Candidates for the sacrament must live in the Parish or regularly attend Mass here.

Confirmation 2019

Open to young people who live in this Parish and are in Year 9. Application forms are available from the sacristy and will only be given to the candidate and not friends or family members. If you are unsure if this group is appropriate for you, and are interested in Confirmation, please speak to Fr Sean for more information on what is available. Completed forms must be returned by Monday, 19th November 2018.

Funeral – Cynthia Apparicio RIP

The funeral Mass of the late Cynthia Apparicio will take place here at St Peter’s on Friday, 23rd November at 11:00am followed by cremation at Islington Crematorium, East Finchley, 1:15pm. Please keep Donna and the family in your prayers. NB No 9am Mass on that day.

Youth Sunday – 25th November – #JustOneFilter

No one thinks twice about altering an image before posting it on social media and we all filter the view of us that we present to the world or even to ourselves to fit in and ‘belong’. This World Youth Day, we want young people to hear the message that there is ONE filter that helps us stay true to ourselves, that helps us all to measure our lives in the right ways and present ourselves to others as we are. This is the filter of God’s Love. When we look at our lives through this filter we see ourselves and others as God does, as truly loved, valued, and significant, no matter what is going on in our lives. We want young people to know that they are works of art, masterpieces, lovingly created by a God who knows them and wants to be close to them. In the Gospel reading for the feast of Christ the King we hear that Jesus came to “testify to the truth” and that “Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice” (John 18:33-37). Many of our young people do not hear often enough the truth that God loves them, and that Jesus, King of the Universe, can transform their lives if they allow Him into their hearts.
