APPEAL FROM FR PAUL


Please get vaccinated. In his latest video message (18 August 2021), Pope Francis says that "being vaccinated with vaccines authorised by the competent authorities is an act of love. And contributing to ensure the majority of people are vaccinated is an act of love. Love for oneself, love for one’s family and friends, love for all people."


In a recent Pastoral Letter to Clergy (10 August 2021), Archbishop Fisher lists eight reasons for getting vaccinated. He summarises his message in a simple appeal: "I ask you, my brothers, to please get vaccinated "(his emphasis).


The dominant opinion of experts is that higher vaccination rates are the only way for us to overcome the pandemic.


We Christians are people of hope. Our shared faith in Jesus Christ and his Gospel gives us a sure map through troubled waters. We can offer powerful witness to our world, especially those who are overwhelmed by fear and despair, by the way we face this time of testing with responsible discipline, courage and concern. Let us pray for one another.

All Saints Parish Prayer during the Pandemic

Merciful God of hope and life, during this time of pandemic,

May we hold to attitudes and behaviours that profess our faith in Jesus Christ,

May we act with care and responsibility to keep our community safe,

May we be beacons of hope to those feeling overwhelmed and fearful.

Heal those who are infected by the virus,

Guide healthcare professionals and researchers in their work,

Inspire politicians, business and community leaders by your wisdom,

Bring those who have died to yourself and comfort their loved ones.

We make this prayer through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

Mary, Mother of God. Pray for us.

All Saints. Pray for us.
