Mass Times this week:
A special welcome to all visitors to Glasgow. We are in the city centre and warmly welcome you to join our parish for Mass.
Just as smoke follows fire, forgiveness follows gratitude. Gratitude ultimately underpins and fuels all genuine virtue, is the real basis of holiness, and the source of love itself. And its major fruit is forgiveness. When we are grateful we more easily find the strength to forgive.
Moreover, just as gratitude underpins genuine virtue, forgiveness underpins genuine religion and morality. Thus, as we get older, we can trim our spiritual vocabulary down to three words: Forgive, forgive, forgive! To age into and then die with a forgiving heart is the ultimate moral and religious imperative. We shouldn’t delude ourselves on this. All the dogmatic and moral purity in the world does little for us if our hearts are bitter and incapable of forgiveness. (Rolheiser)
FR FRANCIS IS LEAVING US- CLERGY MOVES
Fr Francis is being moved to St Jude's and St Maria Goretti's parishes on 22nd September. We will welcome Fr Paul Gargaro to St Patrick's on that day as our new Parish Priest. We pray for them both, for blessings given during their ministries in each parish and for blessings to be received.
