A RABBI RELATES – ‘My grandfather was paralyzed. One day he was asked to tell about something that happened with his teacher, the grat Balshem. Then he told how this saintly Balshem used to leap about and dance while he was at his prayers. As he went on with his story my grandfather stood up: he was so carried away that he had to show how the master had done it and he started to caper about dancing. From that moment he was cured.’
PARISH MAGAZINE – do keep scratching the grey matter! – everyone has a story to tell – [email protected]
SAILING THROUGH THE MONTHS – and soon into October. We’ve had a good week for getting out and about, though the nights are closing in. Hopefully, next year, we will have a few more excursions on Sunday afternoon.
RED – in Religion red is a vital colour. One of the central icons of the Cathollic Church is the Sacred Heart. This is the picture of Jesus with the red heart exposed and framed in thorns: it is the portraiture of love as sacrifice – John O’Donohue.
