St Cecilia

Please give thanks for our parish musicians on the feast of their heavenly patron St Cecilia. Some parishioners may have been taught at school by Presentation Sisters. Their patronal is the Presentation of Mary in the Temple, this week. For Byzantine Christians, both Catholic and Orthodox, this is one of the 12 Great Feasts of the Year, celebrating Mary’s life long dedication to her vocation. The date is the dedication of the first church of Our Lady on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It is a good day to ponder how well we pursue our vocation under God. God gave Mary grace from the moment of her spotless conception for hers. He provides grace in quantity for us, if we will use it. We never out grow what God wants of us, nor are we finished whilst still in this world.
