This Sunday's Reflection
15 June 2017 12th Sunday Year A
WHY PRAY WHEN YOU CAN WORRY?
Fr Brown worries a lot. He's not the best of preachers and he fears that people know this and look down on him when he opens his mouth. So he makes light of it and never really gets involved in a sermon that would challenge.
On the front row is Mary Bradley who's concerned about her family. She struggles to bring up her three children after the death of her husband and now the doctor has told her that a shadow has shown up on her latest set of X-rays.
Gino Benelli is one of the ushers. When he takes the collection each Sunday it simply reminds him of the fact that his own financial situation is anything but rosy. He looks likely to be made redundant from the bakery and he's no idea where he'll get the mortgage money from.
Cathy O'Leary, one of the readers, has lived in a rough part of the parish for years but now as a pensioner she fears for her safety. When she goes out to collect her pension she can't help wondering if she'll be the next mugging victim. And at night she's terrified by the joy riders.
Young Terry Roberts is taking the lead in the school play. On one level he's thrilled, but occasionally he gets this sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach that he's going to make a fool of himself. His older sister, Averil, is nervously awaiting her exam results. She's desperate to get into university.
Germaine Treadway is a faithful choir member. A teacher at the local school, she has yet to meet Mr Right. She can't bear the thought of reaching old age alone and it plays on her mind.
We all have our fears, worries and anxieties. It's only natural. Christians are invited not to live them by themselves but to share them with God. Sharing them with God does not take them all away but it does put them into a different perspective: God's. It also makes us realise that there are more important things to worry about.
Do not be afraid. (Matthew 10: 26)

Welcome to our parish website
We are a very mixed community of Catholics from numerous cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Some of our parishioners have lived here for many years, others have joined us more recently from other parts of the world, indeed from every continent.
Golders Green itself is home to a large Jewish community, and we have a close and growing relationship with our local synagogue.
It is also a multi-faith area and our parish is very involved in Churches Together and Inter Faith Groups.
You are very welcome to join us at any of our Masses and services. If you are here for the first time do come and introduce yourself to either myself, the parish priest (I am usually in the porch before and after each Sunday Mass so that parishioners can make easy contact with me), or the parish Deacon who is present at the Saturday evening, and Sunday morning Masses. We will be delighted to meet you. Our coffee morning in the hall after the 10.30 am Sunday Mass, provides a great opportunity for you to meet other parishioners.
If you are new to the parish, you may like to register your details by way of our parish registration form.
May God bless you.
Fr Tony Convery
