Our October devotion this week: Monday 18th, and Wednesday 20th  respectively. It starts everyday with the Exposition of Blessed Sacrament, Rosary and Benediction.

World Mission Sunday
Next weekend, at His Holiness Pope Francis’ invitation, Catholics in parishes all over the world will be asked to contribute to a special collection for the Pontifical Mission Societies (PMS)—his official charity for overseas mission—during World Mission Sunday. This year. Missio Scotland—the Scottish branch of the PMS—is following the Holy Father’s lead and focusing on young Catholics and exploring how we can support them here in our schools and parishes, so that they are able to live out their mission and support their brothers and sisters in faith throughout the world.  By supporting the Church today, you will ensure that it continues to grow in the future, so please give generously.

Introduction to the Readings: 29th Sunday of the Year
First reading: Isaiah 53:10-11
This short poem explores suffering. As you listen, you may see why this passage was used by the early Christians to understand the cross.
Psalm 33 (32): The Psalm is really a prayer for all of us who benefit from the self-gift of the Servant. 
Second reading: Hebrews 4:14-16
Jesus was like us in all things except sin. Hence, he knows our weaknesses. This should make is easy for us to approach him.
Gospel: Mark 10:35-45
Jesus overturns all our values by declaring that the one who serves is the greatest. He lives this out to the full in his own life. What about the exercise of power and leadership in the Church?
Please pray for:
… the sick and Housebound of our parish
