Sacred Heart

June is traditionally the month of the Sacred Heart, something I never learnt in 4 years at a Catholic School. Also traditionally there are special First Fridays of every month, which we celebrate at St John Fisher Church in West Heath, with a Low Mass celebrated by the PP Fr George Grynowski at 7pm.

One reader asked whether there are pictures and a report from last Friday's Mass. Well, unlike usually when we have about 20 people present and myself serving, this time we had no server and only 9 people. However, the Mass is the same sacrifice however many attend it, because with the noble and traditional ad orientem direction of prayer, we are reminded that we are taking part before the throne of God, in the company of all the Angels and Saints.

Fr George writes:
I said a few words about how appropriate it was to celebrate the Votive Mass of the Sacred Heart the day after Corpus Christi, making the close link between the Blessed Sacrament and the Sacred Heart and frequent communion of reparation.

This First Friday of June 2010 was dedicated to the reader's deceased grandmother on her anniversary.

I made the mass for the first time and I know Fr George as the former assistant priest at St Dunstans, which is where he met the the person the mass was given for. I was particularly pleased to have attended this mass, because I knew the deceased from my childhood. During the homily, he mentioned her devotion to the Catholic faith. I can vouch for this; I attended the school she worked at as a child, and happened to visit her at her home with my mother shortly after her husband's death a few years ago. She said she still had the first Holy Communion card my parents had printed to celebrate the event.
