St Paul's Catholic College Providing Education For The Diocese Of Westminster
Spiritual life of the school continues ….
Whilst we are separated let us unite in thought and prayer for each other, for those who are elderly and those who are vulnerable.
We will update you with weekly prayer and together we will stay connected with each other and with God.
Yesterday we heard from the Gospel of Matthew; Jesus saying “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart; and you will find rest. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (St Matthew)
During lockdown we have all felt the burden of anxiety and had many conversations with one another about uncertainty, money worries, health fears, stress about the future and concerns for our livelihoods. As Christians were called to look after each other, listen to one another, serve one another and to follow Jesus.
Let us put aside some time this week to bring before God all that is troubling us, to then sit still in His presence and to hear God saying to you "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Jesus give to us the peace that only you can give. Jesus we trust in you.
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
