Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time - 23 February 2020 


In the book of Leviticus, we hear the Lord say to Moses 'you must not bear hatred for your brother in your heart'. If your brother does wrong then for no reason, other than love, you should tell him what his offence is so that he can change his ways.

Jesus challenges the social norm of his time which declared that a person was entitled to claim an eye for an eye to exact vengeance for some wrong doing committed against them. Instead he declares they should forgive those who do harm or wrong them. They should even go as far as loving and praying for their enemies. By doing so they can bring about a change of heart of the part of those who have done wrong.

Living out this challenge to love our neighbour as ourselves is perhaps the most difficult of all the commandments. We are tasked with loving not just those who love us but also those who have hurt us by things they have said and done in the past. But, Jesus told his disciples that they would be judged on the unconditional love they showed to others.

We are all grateful recipients of God's forgiveness on many occasions in life. It follows that in return we should imitate God and share that forgiveness with those who have hurt us. When we do, we free ourselves of the burden or the hurt that has caused us pain and resentment once and for all.

Lord give us the grace to put love where there is hate, forgiveness where there is resentment, and healing where there are wounds and hurt.

St. Paul's Church, Ayrfield - Watch Our Services Live Online

St. Paul's Church, Ayrfield is now broadcasting our services online. 

Livestreaming was once a novelty for churches. Today it has become something many churches consider a viable part of their ministry. We are delighted to announce that since Wednesday, 17 July 2019 we are now livestreaming our mass service on the internet.


Click on Watch Online in the menu above to view our services live.


Watching our services online can be a wonderful option for those who cannot leave their homes, especially parishioners who miss church because of illness, family members who have moved away from home or military personnel stationed abroad. Additionally, there are some people who choose not to go to a physical church but do connect with God by watching a livestreamed service.


See our notice board for more information on connecting to our livestream.
