Examination of Conscience
Based on the Beatitudes
Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Do I live a spirit of detachment and generosity?
Do I sacrifice for others?
Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Do I console and help those who mourn and suffer?
Do I show compassion?
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the land.
Am I authentically humble and self-giving?
Have I been egotistical or boastful?
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for holiness, for they will be satisfied.
Am I passionate for the things of God?
Do I work for the triumph of love, peace and justice?
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Am I forgiving and merciful?
Do I give others the benefit of the doubt? Am I harsh or judgmental?
Blessed are the pure of heart, for they will see God.
Am I single-minded in the practice of my faith?
Have I allowed a particular sin or vice to distract me from God?
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Am I a person of reconciliation, peace and mercy?
Do I hold grudges or seek revenge?
Blessed are they who are persecuted, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Do I suffer well?
Am I willing to sacrifice anything for my faith?
Do I allow human respect to keep me from being a Christian witness?

AT HOLY FAMILY
Each Wednesday at 8.00am
at Holy Family Church, Morning Prayer will be said
following the format of the Divine Office.
If you are able, this is a wonderful way to begin the day
and all are welcome.
PLEASE NOTE: Queen's Street carpark is strictly for physically disabled.
Please ensure that any request for a Mass intention is received at least two weeks in advance.
SILENCE BEFORE HOLY MASS
It is of the utmost importance that we recall where we are
and in whose presence we stand.
In light of this and with respect for the prayers
of those around us, silence is to be observed before all Masses.
Please take some time to read the following document
from the Department for Christian Life & Worship: Liturgy Committee, on silence.
Please turn off your mobile phone before entering the Church.
HELP GETTING TO MASS
A number of parishioners kindly assist
those without transport to Mass on Sundays.
If you know of anyone who is experiencing difficulty
in attending Sunday Mass, please get in touch with any member of the SVP.
Sometimes, during holiday periods, additional drivers are needed.
If you can help, please speak to any SVP member.
