FEAR:  Fear can prevent us from becoming that God wants us to be.  Fear of failure, fear of getting it wrong, fear of what others may say, fear of being exposed as the real me can imprison us, keep us in the dark and never allow the light of God’s love to shine on me and in me.  In the Gospels the people whom Jesus most admires are the ones who have made mistakes and learnt from them to become better people.  Pope Francis asks that we have the ‘smell of the sheep’ and calls us to ‘be courageous.   A Church that does not go out of itself, sooner or later, sickens from the stale air of closed rooms’.

The Lateran Basilica:  Today we celebrate the dedication of the Basilica of St John Lateran, historically the oldest church in Rome.  It was the residence of the Pope for centuries and remains his cathedral.  We can take away many reflections from today’s feast: we celebrate the Church as a place of encounter with God; we are also reminded that God is not confined to one building or the structures placed around it.  We gather as community in prayer and worship in our churches united with Christians all over the world, yet we remember that it is the people who gather there in Jesus’ name who are the real Church.

Love God and Neighbour:  The Gospel reminds us that the only proper response to a loving and compassionate God is to love him with all our heart and our neighbour as ourselves.  This in a nutshell is what Christianity is all about.  Jesus showed us how to live the total Gospel – how to love God and neighbour as well.  He didn’t say they were the same thing, but that, we who call ourselves Christians, can’t have one with the other.

Mission Sunday:  Today, Mission Sunday, is a day for widening our horizons beyond the confines of our own small parish, diocese or country.  It is a day for thinking about the faith that we share and the people with whom we share it worldwide.  The theme for this year’s Mission Sunday is ‘That you may have life’.  Paul’s message to the Thessalonians is positive and life-affirming: ‘We always mention you in our prayers and thank God for you all’.  Appreciating others and acting with encouragement is part of our call to respect life and human dignity.  When we pray for each other and help those in need, we are doing just that.  ‘Even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live for ever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect’.  Let us pray to the intercession of Mary, the model of evangelisation, that the Church may become a welcoming home for all people and the source of re-birth for our World.

REFLECTION:  Live Life: The readings today remind us that God entrusts us with the mission to live, celebrate, cherish and protect the life we are given.  We are given great responsibility by the landowner who trusts us and leaves the vineyard to our care and creativity.  God believes in our potential and gives us the means necessary to carry out this mission.  As Paul says in Philippians, Put into practice what you learned and received from me, both from my words and from my actions.  And the God who gives us peace will be with you.  Be aware of the loving God present in your everyday experience, live it and do not let life pass you by.

Love of God and Love of Neighbour:  The vast majority of people in Ireland still believe in God, and most of those baptised Catholic will still profess themselves to be Catholic when asked what religion they are.  There is little point in saying that we are Catholic when we don’t practice our faith.  It is not that being a Catholic means that we have to be perfect.  It is the attitude where one is a Catholic when it suits, but then one doesn’t live like a Catholic.  Love of God and love of neighbour is central to what being a Catholic means.  Everything in Catholic teaching and practice only makes sense in the light of this, which is living with the mind of Christ.
Saint of the Week: Wednesday October 1st St Therese of the Child Jesus. 
Newtownbutler:  Eucharistic Adoration on Wednesday from 10.30 am – 2.00 pm and on Sunday from 7.00-9.00 pm.

Day of Life 2014-Sunday, 5th October:  We pray that Life may be protected and cherished in all its stages and that we may become builders of a better world and protect life.
Road Deaths:  Tragically so far this year 57 people have lost their lives on Northern Ireland’s roads.  This figure is the same as for the whole of 2013.  We are told that most of the deaths could be prevented.  We all share the responsibility of making our roads safer.  This means slowing down, wearing out seatbelts, paying full attention to the road and never driving after drinking alcohol.  It sounds simple.  It makes sense.  We just need to do it.  Let us pray for all those in our parish who have been affected in some way by a road death.

“Friend I am doing you no wrong”:  In today’s Gospel something seems wrong when some people get paid the same for one hour as those who worked all day.  We can easily sympathise with the workers who grumbled.  We would have grumbled too.  Yet we quickly forget that they had agreed to work all day for one denarius.  They had agreed and had been paid a fair wage.  What upsets the whole picture is not that they got paid one denarius, but that the others got paid it too.  In other words, it is the generosity of the landlord (who represents God) that causes the problem.  ‘Friend, I am doing you no wrong.’  This is a moment of grace where God is freeing people from jealousy; there is enough to go around, everyone has received what they were promised.  Even in our relationships with one another, people sometimes want to possess and take all for themselves.  In reality God (and people) can love others unconditionally without taking anything away from us.  If we could liberate ourselves from such insecurities and not let them take hold, life would be a lot happier. Have you been wronged?  Has an injustice occurred to anyone else?  No, then why worry?
Prayer for those away from home:  Loving God, we pray for those whom we love, but who are absent from us.  Keep them safe from all harm, evil and danger.  Bless them with peace, laugher, wisdom, love and joy.  Grant that we may be reunited in the fullness of love; in Christ’s name we pray.  Amen.
