In our day to day living, we become dependent on material securities, thought to be essential for our routine existence.  This is especially noticeable when we get ready to go on a trip and try to decide what to take along.  Usually we take too much, trying to anticipate imagined circumstances.  Part of the reason for over packing is that we are reluctant to break out of our established pattern. Jesus tells the apostles in today’s Gospel what to take along for the journey.  In essence He says to take the treasured message and skip the extras.


Toilet facilities at St.Hildas are in the Sacristy and to the right (follow the signs) and at English Martyrs  they are in the porch

Please do not leave handbags unattended

Sadly not everyone may be in church for the same reasons as you
