18th June the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Dear Friends,              Today we celebrate the Solemn Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. In terms of history this is a relatively modern feast to emphasise the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. This is central to our unders...

11th June, Most Holy Trinity

Dear Friends,      You could say, we began life with the words, “I baptise you, in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” being said over us as water was poured on our forehead.  In my own case, I was baptised on the second...

4th June 2017 Pentecost: The Birthday of the Church

Dear Friends,      Today’s reading from Acts gives us a good account of the first Pentecost. Jesus had left this earthly stage and his prophecy was being fulfilled, “Unless I go, the Advocate (Holy Spirit) cannot come” (John 16:7). What does this ...

28th May 2017 The Ascension of The Lord

Dear Friends,    Today we celebrate the Ascension of The Lord. The Gospel reading from Matthew is short but full of meaning. I think we can rightly say it is the last will and testament of Jesus. He could have made a long speech, given specific in...

21st May 2017 Sixth Sunday of Easter

Dear Friends,   This weekend Bishop Richard will be visiting the parish to confirm young people from Camberley, Bagshot, Ss.Peter & John and Our Lady Queen of Heaven. How fitting in the season of Easter and how strong are the readings to remin...

14th May, 5th Sunday of Easter

Dear Friends, It is because Jesus is our way, our truth and our life that the other two readings have meaning.  Firstly, Peter’s preaching that all who are baptised in the name of the Trinity are the living stones as opposed to dead ones (ie lifel...

7th May 2017 Fourth Sunday of Easter

Dear Friends, Today’s readings call us to follow Jesus in and through our whole way of living. It is sometimes referred to as Good Shepherd Sunday (because of Jesus referring to himself as the shepherd) and has been a traditional day for praying f...

30th April 2017 Third Sunday of Easter

Dear Friends,   Today we encounter one of the great gospel episodes. We have seen the life of Jesus unfold in and through the liturgical year, but it’s no way as intimate for us as for the disciples. So their loss was all the greater as expressed ...

22nd/23rd April 2017 Second Sunday of Easter

Dear Friends,                         Jesus paid the amazing tribute to Thomas by coming to the still terrified disciples securely hiding out of sight in the house “for fear of the Jews”. Thomas had said to them, unless I see (for myself) the woun...

16th April 2017 EASTER SUNDAY OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE LORD

A VERY HAPPY EASTER TO EVERYBODY Dear Friends,   As you read this we are about to complete the “Paschal Mystery” as the church calls it, ie: the celebration of the last days of Jesus on this earth among the disciples. In summary fashion, the first...
