Today was the first Mass in Bedford of Father Patrick O’Donohue, a young priest who has recently joined the FSSP in Reading to test his vocation. 75 people were at Christ the King; a record for a Sunday morning. We thank God for such a wonderful blessing and pray that it may continue. Many of us had the pleasure of meeting Fr. O’Donohue in the church hall afterwards and learning more about his background. We look forward to seeing him again soon!
Fr. O’Donohue gave a wonderful sermon in which he mentioned the Sacred Heart, the Eucharist and the little girl who inspired Venerable Fulton Sheen to make a daily Holy Hour. He also talked about the immense act of charity of inviting someone to Mass.
Next week, Fr. Goddard will be saying Mass – the clocks go back on Sunday and so 8:30am is a little more comfortable for those of us who aren’t “morning people”. So, if you are thinking of coming, or haven’t been in a while, you’ll have an extra hour in bed before the 8:30 Mass next week! And if you know someone who might be interested, next week is a good time to bring them along to Mass!
