Everyone who breathes, high and low, educated and ignorant, young and old,
man and woman,
has a mission, has a work.
We are not sent into this world for nothing; we are not born at random;
we are not here, that we may go to bed at night, and get up in the morning,
toil for our bread,
eat and drink, laugh and joke, sin when we have a mind,
and reform when we are tired of sinning,
rear a family and die.
God sees every one of us; He creates every soul;
He lodges it in the body, one by one, for a purpose.
He needs, He deigns to need, every one of us.
He has an end for each of us; we are all equal in His sight,
and we are placed in our different ranks and stations,
not to get what we can out of them for ourselves, but to labour in them for Him.
As Christ has His work, we too have ours;
as He rejoiced to do His work, we must rejoice in ours also.

Blessed John Henry Newman

This Saturday: Ride & Stride 2019 – 14th September
Each year cyclists, walkers, and horse-riders raise sponsor money for the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust by visiting as many of the churches and chapels of the county on a single day as they can.  The individual churches receive 50% of the money their riders and striders raise.  Last year I raised over £1000.  It’s not too late to take part in this year’s Ride and Stride by riding or striding yourself, or by being one of the team of welcomers who offer refreshments to the weary participants.  Please let me know if you are interested.

This Week & Next
I am on holiday from tomorrow, Monday 9th, to Friday 20th inclusive.  Monsignor and Fr Mat will say the Masses, hear Confessions etc, but for all sick calls and emergencies please call the Fathers of the Oratory on 01865 315800.

Whose work is this but His who said,
‘My Father is working still, and I am working’?
To show the world that He wished to convert it,
not by the wisdom of men, but by His own power,
He chose unlettered men to be preachers to the world;
and He has done the same thing now,
through weak men
graciously accomplishing great things
in the nation of the English.

Pope St Gregory the Great
