Welcome back everyone! The word of the week is Knowledge!

10th week of Ordinary Time

Liturgical Colour: Green

Knowledge is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and before half term we celebrated the Feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit filled the disciples with gifts to spread the Good News, which then turned the disciples into Apostles (founders of the Church.)

Knowledge, along with the gift of Counsel, enables us to be able to make the right choices in life which will make us, and the people around us, happier and closer to God. The gift of knowledge also helps us to know more about God and our faith. It might sound very simple, but you’ll often hear the saying “knowledge is power”. When you take the time to learn about the world around you, you can start to see just what God has created for us. When you learn something new, you grow as a person.

How can you use your knowledge to do some good in the world this week?

Welcome back everyone!

Monday of week 10 in Ordinary Time

Leader/Young person: Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Yesterday the Church celebrated the Feast of Corpus Christi. The feast of Corpus Christi celebrates the Eucharist as the body of Christ. The name ‘Corpus Christi’ is Latin for ‘the body of Christ’.

This jubilant festival is celebrated by Roman Catholics and other Christians to proclaim the truth of the transubstantiation of bread and wine into the actual body of Christ during Mass, and often many Churches celebrate children and adults receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion on this special feast!

In some countries in the world, Catholic churches still celebrate the festival, not only with a Mass, but also with a procession that carries the Eucharist through the streets as a public statement that the sacrifice of Christ was for the salvation of the whole world.

 

Check out this short video clip which shows the Corpus Christi procession that took place in London in 2019 before the pandemic…

As one of the Bishop’s says at the start of the video clip, the procession is a vision of what we should be doing in our everyday lives, ‘carrying Jesus into the streets’ and sharing the love of Jesus with others!

Pope Francis says, 

”The Body of Christ, broken in the sacred Liturgy, can be seen through charity and sharing, 

in the faces and persons of the most vulnerable of our brothers and sisters.”

Discuss and Comment:

We can be the face of Jesus in small but powerful ways, simply by helping the most vulnerable in our society.

How can you reach out to those in need during this final term?

Let us know your suggestions in the comments below!

 

Leader/Young person – Let us Pray together:

Lord Jesus, may we live as your Body on earth. Let us participate in feeding the hungry and being a voice to the voiceless in our world. 

May our very bodies and our blood bear witness to the life you desire for all people. 

Amen. 

 

Leader/Young person: We end our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Tuesday of week 10 in Ordinary Time

Leader/Young person: Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Tuesday Trivia 

As this week’s word of the week is Knowledge let’s see if you can beat some priests in a quiz! Give your answers in the comments below!

 

How well did you do? Let us know in the comments how many you got right!

We take inspiration in our life’s everyday from the scripture. We invite you to take a few moments to reflect on the scripture below and pick and line or two to focus on and welcome the Holy Spirit into your life.

My child, learn what I teach you and never forget what I tell you to do. Listen to what is wise and try to understand it. Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight. Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. If you do, you will know what it means to fear the Lord and you will succeed in learning about God. It is the Lord who gives wisdom; from him come knowledge and understanding. He provides help and protection for those who are righteous and honest. He protects those who treat others fairly, and guards those who are devoted to him.
Proverbs 2:1-11

Leader/Young person – Let us Pray together:

Holy Father,
you who are all-knowing and wise, teach me your ways. I seek your wisdom and insight, I want to have knowledge and understanding. I seek your wisdom, so I can walk in the path you lay before me, knowing right from wrong, protecting against temptation. Fill me with your knowledge, O Lord, so I may walk in the straight and narrow path, in faithfulness to follow you. In Jesus’ name I pray,

Amen.

Leader/Young person: We end our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

LIVE ACT OF WORSHIP LED BY MR GRIFFIN @ 8:45AM

 

Wednesday of week 10 in Ordinary Time – St Ephraem, Deacon, Doctor

St Columba, Abbot

Thursday of week 10 in Ordinary Time

Leader/Young person: Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Yesterday, Mr Griffin and some of our great students from 8T led us through a very insightful Act of Worship.

Mr Griffin explored a piece of scripture from the book of Proverbs

Mr Griffin reflected on the importance of knowledge and the fact that knowledge…

  • helps us to think faster
  • helps us to do the right thing
  • helps us to be more interesting
  • helps us to be more interested

Unfortunately, we had a slight technical difficulty and lost the sound at the end of our worship, so today we are finding out what our mission is this week with a message from Marsha, our Trust Lead Lay Chaplain…

Can you share some of the missions your form group has chosen to complete this week? In what ways or areas or you going to deepen your knowledge and understanding?

 

Leader/Young person – Let us Pray together:

All-knowing God, 

Thank you for giving me a mind that can know and a heart that can love. 

Help me to keep learning everyday of my life, in everything that I do. 

Grant me the grace to put my knowledge to use in building the kingdom of God on earth so that I may enter the kingdom of God in heaven. 

Amen. 

Leader/Young person: We end our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

The Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus 

Leader/Young person: Let us start our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. The sacred heart symbol (see below) has one of the deepest meanings in the Catholic Church. The symbol represents Jesus Christ’s actual heart as His love for all humanity. ‘His heart had a cross, was surrounded by flames, crowned with thorns, and had an open wound.’

 

We are going to be learning some more about this special feast and what the Sacred Heart of Jesus means to Fr Lim…

Leader/Young person – Let us Pray together:

O most holy heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to Your will. Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in You and for You. Protect me in the midst of danger. Comfort me in my afflictions. Give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, and Your blessing on all that I do.

Amen. 

 

Leader/Young person: We end our prayer by making the Sign of the Cross.

All: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
