Open air Mass
A date for the diary: Sunday 16 August, feast of the Assumption, Mass will be at Warwick Racecourse! This will be the only Mass for both parishes that weekend. Please bring a folding chair / stool to sit on and some refreshments for afterwards.
Mass will be at the main stand as this will be easier for the distribution of Holy Communion. Masks not compulsory as we’ll be outdoors. There will be a collection made for the charity Racing Welfare which you may have seen in the news last week (https://racingwelfare.co.uk/).
EIGHTEENTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR
In today's Gospel, when Jesus is informed by his disciples about the people’s lack of food, his first reaction was to tell the disciples that they should provide the necessary food: 'You give them something to eat'. We cannot dodge this. We cannot look away. As individuals and as societies when faced with the hunger of others, Jesus's words stand – you give them something to eat.
After the miracle, the remaining food was collected. Organising ourselves so as to waste a lot of food is another way of depriving others in need, it throws away the possibility of caring for others. To 'enjoy' a standard of living so distant from the misery of so many others, and possibly making it worse, should be a disturbing kind of pleasure.
