9th August 2015 – 19th Sunday of Ordinary Time (B)

Today’s Good News is that Jesus came to nourish us on all levels of life and he still comes to us, not just at Sunday Mass, but through the people and experiences of our daily life.  ‘Lord Jesus, may each one of us who claims to be a disciple of yours show to others that you still come to us through our love, concern, compassion, forgiveness and service of all people we meet”. Give us your Holy Spirit to help us to do this.
