We see in the Gospel today how Jesus respects people’s freedom of choice. Jesus offers his followers the choice to stay with him or join the ranks of those who turn away from him. But the choice to remain with Jesus has to be kept alive by continually renewing our commitment to follow him. Decisions in faith are never settled once and for all. Like the apostles in today’s Gospel, we must keep on choosing Jesus, the One who has the message of eternal life.

The Diocesan Vision: Unfolding God’s Plan
You may recall a Pastoral Letter from Archbishop Bernard Longley was read out at Mass a few weeks ago. It outlined the vision for the Archdiocese as we move forward. Leaflets explaining The Diocesan Vision: Unfolding God’s Plan will be available to take away this weekend. Please pick up a copy for yourself, and take copies for those who are unable to come to Mass. More information on the Vision is available on the Diocesan website here.
