Fr Stan writes …

On Friday (7th October), the Church celebrates the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. This feast was established by Pope Pius V on the anniversary of the naval victory won by the Christian fleet at Lepanto in 1571. The victory was attributed to the help of Mary whose aid was invoked through praying the Rosary. The Feast invites us to meditate upon the mysteries of Christ, following the example of Mary who was so singularly associated with the incarnation, passion and resurrection of the Son of God. I encourage you to join us for Mass and Rosary on this day commencing at 8:30am. If you are unable to join us, maybe you can find five minutes in your day to pray a decade of the Rosary with your families for peace in the world.

On the same day, (7th October), we have our First Friday Devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Holy Mass commencing at 7:00pm.


Hab 1:2-3; 2:2-4

A reading from the prophet Habakkuk

How long, Lord, am I to cry for help

while you will not listen;

to cry ‘Oppression!’ in your ear

and you will not save?

Why do you set injustice before me,

why do you look on where there is tyranny?

Outrage and violence, this is all I see,

all is contention, and discord flourishes.

Then the Lord answered and said,

‘Write the vision down,

inscribe it on tablets

to be easily read,

since this vision is for its own time only:

eager for its own fulfilment, it does not deceive;

if it comes slowly, wait,

for come it will, without fail.

See how he flags, he whose soul is not at rights,

but the upright man will live by his faithfulness.’

To indicate the end of the reading, the reader acclaims:

The word of the Lord

Ps 94:1-2. 6-9. R. v.8

(R.) If today you hear his voice,

harden not your hearts.


1. Come, ring out our joy to the Lord;

hail the rock who saves us.

Let us come before him, giving thanks,

with songs let us hail the Lord. (R.)


2. Come in; let us bow and bend low;

let us kneel before the God who made us

for he is our God and we

the people who belong to his pasture,

the flock that is led by his hand. (R.)


3. O that today you would listen to his voice!

‘Harden not your hearts as at Meribah,

as on that day at Massah in the desert

when your fathers put me to the test;

when they tried me, though they saw my work.’ (R.)

2 Tm 1:6-8, 13-14

A reading from the second letter of St Paul to Timothy

I am reminding you to fan into a flame the gift that God gave you when I laid my hands on you. God’s gift was not a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power, and love, and self-control. So you are never to be ashamed of witnessing to the Lord, or ashamed of me for being his prisoner; but with me, bear the hardships for the sake of the Good News, relying on the power of God.

Keep as your pattern the sound teaching you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. You have been trusted to look after something precious; guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.

To indicate the end of the reading, the reader acclaims:

The word of the Lord

1 Pt 1:25

Alleluia, alleluia!

The word of the Lord stands for ever;

it is the word given to you, the Good News.


Lk 17:5-10

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

The apostles said to the Lord, ‘Increase our faith.’ The Lord replied, ‘Were your faith the size of a mustard seed you could say to this mulberry tree, “Be uprooted and planted in the sea”, and it would obey you.

‘Which of you, with a servant ploughing or minding sheep, would say to him when he returned from the fields, “Come and have your meal immediately”? Would he not be more likely to say, “Get my supper laid; make yourself tidy and wait on me while I eat and drink. You can eat and drink yourself afterwards”? Must he be grateful to the servant for doing what he was told? So with you: when you have done all you have been told to do, say, “We are merely servants: we have done no more than our duty.”’

At the end of the Gospel, the Deacon, or the Priest, acclaims:

The Gospel of the Lord.
