17th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Sunday 27th July 2014

Solomon prayed for the wisdom to discern the true value if things. We scarcely need the Wisdom of Solomon to realise that in finding the love of God and the kingdom of God we have found a treasure beyond price. It is in the joy of this realisation that we hold our celebration today.

Climb till your dreams come true !

Often your tasks will be many, And more than you think you can do,
Often the road will be rugged, And the hills insurmountable too.

But always remember the hills ahead, Are never as steep as they seem,
And with faith in you heart, start upwards, And climb till you reach your dream.

For faith is a mover of mountains, There’s nothing that God cannot do.
So start out today with faith in your heart, And climb till your dreams come true !
