“What I have Failed to Do”
It isn’t the things you’ve done but the things you leave undone, which give you a little heartache at the setting of the sun.
The gentle word forgotten, the letter you didn’t write; the flowers you might have sent, are your haunting ghosts tonight.
The tender touch of the hand, the caring and kindly tone; which we have no time or thought for, with troubles enough of our own.
Sealed with the Spirit
11.00am Mass this Sunday includes the families of the children preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Again, if you know any of the childre or parents, please pass on a word of encouragement.
