NOVEMBER: Month of the Holy Souls.  During the month of November, Mass intentions will be offered – whenever possible - for the Holy Souls whose names are submitted on your November Dead Lists.  Other, non-urgent, Mass intentions will be offered at the earliest opportunity in December or January.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE POOR:  Pope Francis’s theme for this world day of prayer on 17th November is: “THE HOPE OF THE POOR SHALL NOT PERISH FOR EVER”. In his message for the third World Day of the Poor, Pope Francis reminds us that “the poor are not numbers, but people”, to be assisted, accompanied, protected, defended and saved. He recalled that this is not possible without the humility of listening, the charism of the whole, the courage of renunciation. He reminded us that to “follow the way of charity, of humility and of listening means lending an ear to the little ones”, because God reveals himself through them. And he asked us not to look down on anyone from above. “You can only look down at a person from above,” he insisted, “in order to help them get up”.

During the Holy Father’s audience with delegates of the Caritas Internationalis General Assembly on 27 May 2019, he called for serious action in this regard. He urged us to live our mission with a style of poverty, gratuitousness and humility. He insisted that we cannot live charity without having interpersonal relationships with the poor: living with and for the poor. He denounced any hypocritical and deceptive charity that merely gives alms, and acts as if to salve our worried conscience.

For our Holy Father, charity is not to be equated with philanthropic effectiveness, planning efficiency or even an overstated and agitated organisation. He invited us to cultivate a personal encounter with Christ, in order to meet him in the poor (see Matt. 25). For further details please visit:   www.csan.org.uk    Bp. Alan Hopes.

 

1,150 ANNIVERSARY MASS of

SAINT EDMUND OF EAST ANGLIA, King & Martyr

869 - 2019

Wednesday 20th November

Morning Prayer at 9.15 a.m. and Mass of Saint Edmund at 9.30 a.m.

 

National Youth Sunday (24th Nov.) represents an opportunity to explicitly recognise young people as a gift in the Church and affirm their contribution in the life of the local and universal Church.  It also provides parishes with an opportunity to focus on the role of young people in the Sunday liturgy and in parish life. Most importantly, it is a chance to pray for and alongside young people. The theme is ‘Significance’ taken from Christus Vivit: “For him, you have worth; you are not insignificant. You are important to him, for you are the work of his hands. That is why he is concerned about you and looks to you with affection” (CV: 115).    May every parish in our diocese be united in praying for young people that they may come to know more fully their significance and the love the Lord has for them. May every young person in our Church know by the love of you and me, their brothers and sisters in faith, of their worth and their significance in God’s eyes, writes Bp. Alan Hopes.

Diocesan Youth Service:  Second collections will be taken after the Masses on 23rd and 24th November to support the work of the Diocese of East Anglia Youth service.

Aid to the Church in Need have asked dioceses to make the following request: “The world is largely silent when it comes to religious persecution, so it is up to us to defend religious freedom and shine a light on the suffering of persecuted Christians and others – especially in Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan and China. Yours and your parishioners’ prayers and action are vital. Be visible. Wear something red. Light your parish or local landmark red on Wednesday 27th November”.  There will be a special Mass celebrated in our Cathedral in Norwich for persecuted Christians at 7.00 p.m. on Wednesday 27th November.  Bp. Alan Hopes.

IPSWICH  HOSPITAL CHAPLAINCY:  Please note that the staff of the N.H.S. Trust at Ipswich will not automatically inform the hospital’s Catholic chaplain when a Roman Catholic person is admitted to Ipswich Hospital.  If you wish to be visited when in hospital, you or your relatives must inform the hospital chaplains’ office about your stay in hospital. Telephone the hospital switchboard on 01473 712233 and ask for the chaplains’ office, where you may leave a message.
