Living Word - Daily Reflection Catholic Voice

 

Heart revealing
 

04 August 2020

I am a fan of Agatha Christie books.

In one book, the detective Hercule Poirot says to his friend Hastings that it doesn’t matter whether the suspects tell him the truth; even when they are lying, he says, they are revealing themselves.

In today’s gospel Jesus tells us that it is what comes OUT of our mouths that makes us unclean, not what goes into it. This would have been a significant challenge to the Jews of the time, who had developed elaborate rituals around cleanliness. Here was Jesus saying that their rituals had very little to do with true goodness or holiness.

Have you ever found that something which slips out of your mouth reveals something unpleasant about you? Perhaps an insult that flies out before you can stop it, or a piece of gossip, or a criticism of another?

When this happens, we can use this experience to discover something about ourselves; that we are critical, or unkind, or pleased at the misfortunes of others. What comes out of our mouths has shown us where we are unclean. And that is a great gift, because we can ask God to clean us deep down in our hearts, the source of our speech. What has come out of our mouths shows us that we cannot make ourselves holy through elaborate rituals; we need God.  

 

A VERY DIFFERENT CELEBRATION FOR ST MARY MACKILLOP

A Very different celebration this year for the Archbishop’s St Mary MacKillop Pilgrimage to Eden.  With COVID19 part of our lives - our Pilgrimage will be different this year.  On 8th August, at 12.15pm Archbishop Christopher will live stream Mass from St Christopher's Cathedral in Canberra.

With social distancing we will meet together in the Eden Church to watch and pray together this Mass to honour our special Australian Saint.  2020 also marks 10 years since Mary was canonised by Pope Benedict XVI

In Eden we will gather at 11.30 am for prayers before Mass commences.  We will receive Communion during Mass. You must register at the Parish Office.

For those unable to attend physically - please join us online.

A Journey to Feast Day Mary MacKillop – 8thAugust, 2020

 

Pilgrimage is a journey of discovery - an external journey to a distant destination where as pilgrims you can walk in the footsteps of Christ or the Saints as well as an internal journey of self discovery, an opportunity to deepen your personal relationship with God and to reconnect with your true purpose.

 

We have put together this small contribution to your daily prayer.  Each day begins with a quote from Mary to contemplate, followed by prayer. We hope you find it helpful.

 

 

1stAugust:

 

God will take care of you. (10.3.1874)

 

 

God of the prophets you gifted Mary MacKillop with vision and courage.
In her we see one who was not afraid to speak fearlessly your gospel of love.
We pray for the sensitivity and imagination to read the signs of our times, and to articulate new possibilities for our own day. Like Mary, may we learn to confront all that is oppressive and unjust, and empower others towards true freedom and integrity. Spirit of wisdom, be with us as we face new horizons. Amen

 

 

Mary MacKillop Prayer

Ever generous God,
You inspired Saint Mary MacKillop
To live her life faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ
and constant in bringing hope and encouragement
to those who were disheartened, lonely or needy.
With confidence in your generous providence
and through the intercession of Saint Mary MacKillop
We ask that you grant our request……………….
We ask that our faith and hope be fired afresh by the Holy Spirit
so that we too, like Mary MacKillop, may live with courage, trust and openness.
Ever generous God hear our prayer.
We ask this through Jesus Christ. Amen.

Mary MacKillop

 

 

 

 

2ndAugust

 

How very good God is to us all.  (2.8.1870)

 

God of all blessings, you revealed in Mary MacKillop a sensitivity to the rights and dignity of every person, regardless of race or creed. May we learn from her to overcome the obstacles of prejudice and fear. Help us to value the goodness of each person and all the blessings of unity in diversity.
We ask this through the depth and unity of you, our bountiful God, who hold all things in being. Amen

3rdAugust

How good God is to me and how much reason I have to be grateful (22.2.1899)

 

God of compassion, God of all people, we praise you for your servant, Mary MacKillop, who gave her life to serve you in the poor and oppressed.
As she is honoured in our world, may we continue to learn to share her vision.
Help us to recognise, as she did, that the poor of our time will hear the gospel in the way we serve them. Be with us as we strive to follow her and carry out our mission of service and care. Amen

 

Mary MacKillop Prayer


PRAYER IN THIS TIME OF COVID 19

Pray for leaders responsible for making decisions about the new coronavirus.

Father, we seek Your wisdom daily. Be with people making decisions that affect the lives and futures of our families, communities, countries, and the wider world. We pray that they communicate clearly, truthfully, and calmly — with each other and with the public — and that their messages are received and heeded. May truth and empathy be the touchstones of people setting policies for our protection.

He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers …—2 Corinthians 1:10-11 (NIV)
