Twenty-eighth Sunday of Ordinary Time 

12th/13th  October 2019

He threw himself at the feet of Jesus and thanked Him

What ingratitude on the part of nine of the ten lepers. They had never expected to be cured and return to their families, to the world, ever again. And now they were perfectly well again not one of them remembered to thank the one who had worked this great miracle.
How good are we at saying ‘thank you’? God made us, he has brought us into the fold of the Church through the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation and he nourishes and strengthens us through the Eucharist as often as we present ourselves for Holy Communion. When I was a very new priest, I took Holy Communion to an elderly man in a residential home in Beverley. He always said the following prayer after receiving the Lord ‘What return can I make to the Lord for all he has done for me…’ It is a line from Psalm 116. I was touched by his intense gratitude for this gift of the Lord in Holy Communion.
What return can any of us make for the gift of Holy Communion? We can spend time in thanksgiving after Communion and after Mass. We can also spend time before the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament in Exposition. This is available in the Chaplaincy every Thursday evening at 6.30pm, on Friday morning from 8.30am and on Saturday morning from 10am.

Response to the Psalm: The Lord has shown his salvation to the nations.

WEEKLY MASS TO BE CELEBRATED IN LATIN EVERY THURSDAY EVENING
After Pope Benedict confirmed that every priest had permission to celebrate Mass using the pre-1969 Rite, often called the ‘Tridentine Rite’ now the ‘Extraordinary Form’, Bishop Drainey arranged for it to be available in the main areas of the Diocese. It is now celebrated weekly at the University Chaplaincy every Thursday evening at 7.30pm. It will seem very unfamiliar in some aspects to anyone under the age of 65. There is plenty of information available on line and a brief explanation will be given before each Mass.
