SETTLEMENT SCHEME – STATEMENT FROM OUR BISHOP

The government will soon launch a settlement Scheme, offering EU citizens living here a legal route to remain. While this is an important step, we understand that, especially for people who have contributed to our society over many years, it may feel unjust and divisive that they are now required to apply for permission to stay. Despite our concerns about this, we would point all our EU citizens to www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families and to make use of various resources available at www.gov.uk/government/publications/eu-settlement-scheme-community-leaders-toolkit in order to protect their existing rights and their place in our society.

CHRISTMAS THOUGHT

I opened the present with decreasing excitement. The wrapping gradually disclosed a small squashy package: it could be one of only two items: socks or handkerchiefs. ‘Of all the unimaginative presents’, I thought. But I did the social thing, put on a smile, and said ‘thank you’ to the distant, aged relative.

The ancient Romans used to exchange gifts at the time of the winter feast; the idea was carried on into Christian times, perhaps stimulated by the gold, frankincense and myrrh given, according to the Gospel, by the wise men.

We give presents on many occasions as a sign of our affection for another person, that’s clear. But at Christmas it is also a sign of what we have received: God becoming part of our world, being born, being Jesus. – A gift to us from God the all-powerful.

So Christmas presents have a different dimension. We are imitating, consciously or not, the actions of God. In receiving them we are, perhaps, saying that we wish to be open to the God who came to share our world.

So accepting the socks, the handkerchiefs, and the after-shave, is one way of being open to the presence of Jesus in other people.

CHRISTMAS MASS TIMES


REFLECTION

I was in a shopping centre recently and watched the parents taking their children to Santa’s grotto. They were pushed up past the elf, and handed on to the fairy. – Then they got their time on the red knee of Fr. Christmas himself.  It was comforting to them all, except for the small boy who burst into tears on being separated from his mummy. We can all remember the excitement of being close to someone as powerful as Fr. Christmas, who had the ability to transform Christmas with the presents we asked for. We put our words into his ear, and left in the hope that they would come to fulfilment on Christmas morning. It was trust and hope together.

These two: trust and hope, are the strengths of Christmas for us all. – We trust in the birth of God as a human because it brought about the unity between creation and God through the death and resurrection of Jesus. We hope we can share in this power of love.

The attitude of children on the knee of Santa is a lesson to us. But adults are more than children: we are not self-centred. The trust and hope which we have is to help us live more fully. We are set free by our love. Is Christmas for us a time of real freedom?

A PRAYER FOR REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY

Lord, welcome into your calm and peaceful kingdom

those who have departed out of this present life to be with you.

Grant them rest and a place with the spirits of the just;

and give them the life that knows no age,

the reward that does not pass away.

(St Ignatius of Loyola)
