      As mentioned in this week's homily, we will spend two weeks delving into Jesus' teaching on prayer. Here are the 3-points for your consideration this week: 1) Make time for prayer - make prayer time a daily part of your routine! 2) Remember to whom it is that we pray - God our loving Father, not just a distant, impersonal being in the universe, but a God who desires a personal relationship with all of us. 3) Learn to Listen - spend time in silence with our Lord, and listen to his voice - prayer should be a two-way conversation!

      In Sunday's gospel, the disciples ask Jesus to 'teach them to pray'. In reply, Jesus teaches them the Lord's Prayer, the 'Our Father'. This is the perfect prayer given to us by Jesus himself. Do we just recite the prayer on autopilot from memory, or do we pray it with fervent attention and devotion?

      On this 16th Sunday of Ordinary Time, we hear the story of Jesus' meeting with Martha and Mary. It is a good lesson to us all to slow down, and 'smell the roses'. Jesus calls us all to take time each day to leave our worries aside, and to spend some quality time in prayer with Him.

      On this 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time, we hear in our gospel the famous parable of the Good Samaritan. May it always be a reminder to us of how Jesus has gone above and beyond for us, just as the Good Samaritan goes above and beyond to save and care for the injured man he meets along the road. Let us always do likewise, loving our neighbour as ourselves (Lk 10:27).

      just wanted to say a quick thank you to everybody for your warm welcome this past weekend.  It's a great joy to be with you at St. Michael's to build on the good work of Fr. Paul and Fr. Con.  I look forward to meeting everyone - just be patient with me as it may take awhile to learn you names!
