Banns of Marriage

Lucy Jane Barber and Edward John Snaith intend with the blessing of God to be joined in Holy Matrimony.

If anyone knows of any reason why these persons should not be joined in matrimony, this must be declared to the Parish Priest.

The Rite of Marriage for Lucy and Edward will take place on Friday of this coming week and we wish them a wonderful day and God's blessing for their future life together.

Gospel John 6:1-15 The feeding of the five thousand. (short Extract) Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and gave them out to all who were sitting ready; he then did the same with the fish, giving out as much as was wanted. When they had eaten enough he said to the disciples, ‘Pick up the pieces left over, so that nothing gets wasted.’ So they picked them up, and filled twelve hampers with scraps left over from the meal of five barley loaves. The people, seeing this sign that he had given, said, ‘This really is the prophet who is to come into the world.’ Jesus, who could see they were about to come and take him by force and make him king, escaped back to the hills by himself.

 

Commentary For the next 5 weeks, the reading of Mark’s Gospel is interrupted to be replaced by that of John. These Sundays are a time to talk about the Eucharist, not as something distant and abstract, but something as close to us a life itself, something in which we are personally involved. We realise that the Eucharist is an action, a great Thanksgiving. A sign is given, people pursue Jesus to ask for more; Jesus gives them an explanation which reveals who he is, but which causes many of them to reject him; he asks his closest followers to decide.  The question ‘What about you, do you want to go away too?’ is one for us all.  Decani Liturgy

Saints of the Week St Anna and St Joachim An ancient tradition, already known in the 2nd century, gives these names to the parents of the Virgin Mary. The cult of St Anna became popular in the 6th century in the East, and in the 10th century in the West, where she is the patron saint of Brittany; Joachim was added a long time later – too often the fate of fathers. Although the information about Mary’s parents is found in an early apocryphal writing that gives many miraculous and highly-coloured stories about the early life of the Virgin Mary, there is no reason to suppose that such a straightforward fact as her parents’ names should be wrong. It does not occur in the Gospels simply because the most reliable evangelists (the only ones whom we have allowed into the Bible) felt they had more important things to talk about. But what, after all, could be more important than the parents who brought up the Virgin Mary to be the woman she was? At the moment of consenting to the Incarnation she took the most important decision ever taken by any human being, and the fact that she took it is, to a great extent, the work of her parents. The Holy Spirit gave her the strength to take the decision; but her parents’ training gave her the wisdom to choose. Those of us who have children must seek to bring them up to the best of our ability, to meet challenges that, like Anna and Joachim, we have no way of even imagining.

The first World Day of Prayer for Grandparents and the Elderly takes place today. Pope Francis has declared July 25, 2021, as the first World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly. This celebration will take place every year on the fourth Sunday of July, close to the feast of Ss Joachim and Anne, grandparents of Jesus, to celebrate the wisdom of the elderly and the joy and vocation of being a grandparent. In announcing this special day, Pope Francis said, “Not only are grandchildren and young people called upon to be present in the lives of older people, but older people and grandparents also have a mission of evangelization, proclamation and prayer, and of encouraging young people in their faith.”
