The Roman Catholic Parish of
Year of Mission - Where are we grounded? Where are we anchored and rooted? Is it in things, possessions,
treasures or are we rooted and anchored in God? Are we defined by what we have or by what we do, or are we defined by our
relationship with the Lord. In today’s Gospel there is a challenge to ‘let go’ of everything and to find security,
strength, and an understanding of who we are in our relationship with the Lord. It is only when we let God dwell at the
centre, when we are defined by his love for us, that we come to understand the freedom and the life he offers us; when we
are weighed down by our possessions we find it is our possessions that possess us. In all we do to proclaim the Gospel
this week, let us reveal what it is that dwells at the heart of our life because of the way we live and the way we love.
