TODAY IS GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY This Sunday is Good Shepherd Sunday. It is traditionally a day of prayer for vocations to the Priesthood. God calls each of us to serve him in some particular way so it is important for us to promote a culture of vocations within the church. A person might be called to live a single life, to marriage, to religious life or to the priesthood.  Please give generously to the collection today towards the promotion of vocations. Please also pray in particular to day for vocations to the priesthood for our diocese and for our current seminarians as they journey towards priesthood. They are Paschal Uche, Adrian Lowe, Michael Barwick, Tony Grant, Alexander Johnson, Damien Wade, Matúš Meleg and Jonathan Burden. Our new seminarian is Moses Itene who will start at Allen Hall in September. At the moment there are ten young men in the priesthood enquirers’ group. Thank you for your prayers and generosity.  Fr.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD Recently, I wrote about my mother’s heart valve replacement and her fear around scheduling the necessary procedure. My mother’s faith in God is strong and always has been, but worried that something would go wrong, she couldn’t face having the surgery until she consciously put all of her trust in the Lord’s hands. Her situation left me wondering…is there a difference between faith and trust? This question has been on my mind for a while now. It is one thing to believe in God, but another entirely to trust blindly in Him. And it is human nature to fear the unknown. The struggle with placing our trust entirely in God is something we must all face at one time or another. It boils down to this: faith is a belief system; trust is action. Faith is believing that God is who God says He is and that what God can do, only God can do. But trust takes things a step further. It is making the willful choice to trust that God will do what He promises. The head versus heart.  Here’s an example. In the Gospel, there is a story of a sick child whose father told Jesus, “I believe, help my unbelief.” Just like the father in the story, my mother had faith in God. But she needed to trust that God was in control of her situation before moving forward with the procedure. Most of us believe in the power of God thanks to our personal experiences and through reading the Bible. But putting these beliefs into action can be a true challenge for most. Placing our trust in God is our choice and one that we must make wholeheartedly. But no matter what,

God is with us. Lord, help us put our faith into action so that we can trust You wholeheartedly with our lives. By Pablo Diaz.
