Scripture Refelection

I have seen the sun break through
to illuminate a small field
for a while, and gone my way
and forgotten it. But that was the
pearl of great price, the one field that had treasure in it.



I realise now
that I must give all that I have
to possess it. Life is not hurrying

on to a receding future, nor hankering after
an imagined past. It is the turning
aside like Moses to the miracle
of the lit bush, to a brightness
that seemed as transitory as your youth
once, but is the eternity that awaits you.


The Bright Field—R S Thomas

ANDREW THORLEY  completes his Coast to Coast ride for CAFOD at Southport on Wednesday 30 July.  He will be passing through Warrington and having a pit stop at Blessed John Henry Newman Church at approximately 9.30am.  It would be nice if a few parishioners could cheer him on for his last lap to Southport. 


CAFOD is currently supporting the many refugees in Syria, any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.


Sponsor forms are still available If you would like to support Andrew .
