The Second Reading today speaks of the significance of what we allow to enter our minds. It encourages us to feed our minds with whatever is true; whatever is lovely; whatever is admirable; whatever is excellent. And it offers the promise that the peace of God will ‘guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus’. And yet we also know that many people have little control over what enters their minds on account of conditions such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and other mental health issues. Let us remember today all for whom the daily thoughts of the mind are a constant struggle.

Sunday 5th October – Day for Life
Today is Day for Life. Celebrated annually by the Catholic Church in Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. A day dedicated to celebrating the dignity of life from conception to natural death, this year focuses on the theme: Protect and Cherish Life. It seems a little strange that we have a need for a Day for Life – a day when we are reminded, bring to mind the importance and sacredness of life. Life seems to be the one precious gift that we can easily take for granted until something happens to remind us how fragile it is.Whether it is a sudden death, watching with horror the reactions of the families of those on Flight MH17 or the daily atrocities of those suffering in Gaza. The readings today remind us we have a mission to live, celebrate, cherish and protect the life we are given.
