Father David’s News

This weekend we as a Parish at Ash keep our Patronal Feast – The Feast of the Guardian Angels. (the official date of which is on 2nd October during the week, but this Sunday is the nearest Sunday when the parish community assembles and so we take this opportunity to celebrate the Feast of the Guardian Angels and to pray for our Parish community here at Ash.

The Old Testament tells us that Angels are God’s special messengers – a way that God shares his love for us.  The Angel Gabriel brought God’s news of the birth of Jesus to Mary.  Angels sang at the birth of Christ.  We do not know what an Angel looks like but artists quite often show them in human form but with wings to signify that their mission is from heaven.

The beautiful copy of the 14th Century painting, which we have moved today from our Lady’s side of the Church to the Altar shows our Blessed Lady surrounded by angels.  On this our Parish Feast Day let us pray that we too may have one of God’s angels near us in times of challenge in life.

Holy Guardian Angels, Patron of our Parish, Pray for us.

God Bless you all,         Father David
