|Our parish celebrated Catholic Nurses’ Guild Annual Mass and Blessing last Sunday, to show appreciation for healthcare givers and professionals.|
A Pure Heart
There is a story about a master who one day put the following question to some of his disciples: ‘What is the thing that one should avoid most in life?’
‘An evil eye,’ said the first. `
‘A treacherous friend’ said the second.
‘A bad neighbour’ said the third.
‘A bad heart,’ said the fourth.
The Master liked the last answer best, because it included all the others.
Then he said, ‘And what is the most desirable life?
‘A good eye,’ said the first.
‘A good friend,’ said the second.
‘A good neighbor,’ said the third.
‘A good heart,’ said the fourth.
The Master liked the last answer best, because it included all the others. We must strive for cleanness of heart. Total purity of heart is unattainable here on earth. It is a struggle that will always go on. A pure heart is not the same as an empty heart.
A heart that is full of love is a pure and healthy heart.
|Nurses Day Mass|
During the Catholic Nurses’ Guild Annual Mass and Blessing Mass, healthcare givers and nurses recited the Nurses’ Pledge and had their hands blessed, as they reaffirmed their dedication to God. The joyful occasion ended on a high note with a sumptuous buffet treat.
