Fifth Sunday of Easter

Theme: New Horizons

Life is a pilgrimage, where new horizons constantly appear, and new challenges must be met. As on any journey, it is important to keep our eyes fixed on our destination which is eternal life. With Christ as our guide our church will not go astray, even if we have to make changes and relax some of our cherished traditions in order to meet the new needs of our people, here and now – just as the apostles did, when they set up new ministries to deal with new needs. We may be God’s temple and yet not be “set in stone”, for as St Peter puts it, we are “living stones” and the house we are built into is the living body of Christ.
