The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God

And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

It is by grace that you have been saved, through faith; not by anything of your own, but by a gift from God; not by anything that you have done, so that nobody can claim the credit.

Ephesians 2:8-9

A Thought for Today

O humble sublimity! O sublime humility! that the Lord of the universe, God and the Son of God, so humbles himself that for our salvation he hides himself under a morsel of bread. Consider, brothers, the humility of God and pour out your hearts before him, and be humbled that you may be exalted by him. Do not therefore keep back anything for yourselves that he may receive you entirely who gives himself up entirely to you.

St Francis of Assisi
