BEACONSFIELD PARISH NEWS
In our Gospel Reading this weekend, Jesus assures us that ultimately all of us have a home to which to go, namely, our Father's house in Heaven. He even says that He has gone to prepare a place for us in that House. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, the One in Whom we can place our trust. This is a tremendous reason for hope. Because we believe these things we gather to praise God.
A Reflection for Mother's Day:
