‘Those we have loved and have died are never really lost; we carry them with us in our hearts’

This month is an appropriate time to reflect on the place of remembrance in Christian life; our calling to mind of all of those who have died, and those who lost their lives in war and conflict. Out of this remembrance we can experience hope that the sacrifices and tragedies of life can find some meaning in the promises and teachings of Jesus.

John 6:v 51: I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is My flesh for the life of the world.”

Father, through our prayers together strengthen our faith,
increase our hope and make our love for You more complete.
We thank You for those times when, in prayer,
we are able to share with You and our friends our
hopes and concerns when we,
as a community, are able to grow in faith, trust and hope.
We thank You in the name of Jesus our Lord.
Amen
