Parishioner Recognised By Archbishop George

At the end of Mass on the Solemnity of the Baptism of the Lord, parishioner Malcolm Williams was recognised by Archbishop George Stack for his contribution to the life of the parish and the wider diocese, and awarded the Diocesan Medal.

Malcolm has contributed greatly to the spiritual development of the parish. In 1990, he took over as Choir Master of the St. David’s Parish choir. This same choir still exists today, enhancing the liturgical celebrations for the St. David’s community. In a wider context, he has also served in roles which have facilitated the running of the parish, including the Parish Advisory Council for many years, and, lately, The Parish Building Committee for the last ten years or so. 

Congratulations to you, Malcolm!

Pope Francis: “Let us not forget adoration”

Pope Francis during the Epiphany Mass

 

During Mass for the Solemnity of the Epiphany, Pope Francis reflected upon the “climactic moment” of the Magi at the end of their journey: “they fell down and worshiped the Child”. The Holy Father reflects:

They worshiped.  Let us we never forget this: the journey of faith finds renewed strength and fulfilment only when it is made in the presence of God.  Only if we recover our “taste” for adoration will our desire be rekindled.  Desire leads us to adoration and adoration renews our desire.  For our desire for God can only grow when we place ourselves in his presence.  For Jesus alone heals our desires.  From what?  From the tyranny of needs.  Indeed, our hearts grow sickly whenever our desires coincide merely with our needs.  God, on the other hand, elevates our desires; he purifies them and heals them of selfishness, opening them to love for him and for our brothers and sisters.  This is why we should not neglect adoration, that prayer of silent adoration which is not so common among us.  Please let us not forget adoration.

There are several opportunities to Adore the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament here in the parish throughout the week:

Tuesdays – 10:30am until 11:30am at St. David’s Church, Pontnewydd

Fridays – 10:30am until 12:00pm at Our Lady’s Church, Old Cwmbran

Saturdays – 10:30am until 11:45am at Our Lady’s Church, Old Cwmbran

 

The Holy Father’s homily can be read in full here.
