St. John 2:1-11
There was a wedding at Cana of Galilee …the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ Jesus said, ‘Woman why turn to me? My hour has not come yet.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ … Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water,’ and take it to the steward.’ They did this; the steward tasted the water, and it turned into wine.

The Bishops of Scotland
have revised the timing for the restoration of Sunday Obligation.  The Bishops feel it will have to be postponed until a more favourable time. As Sunday is always a Holy Day we invite those who are unable to be with us in person to continue to join with us in prayer and spiritual Communion either in person or by online celebration of Mass.
We ask everyone to continue to pray for a speedy end to the Pandemic and for the good health of you and your loved ones in 2022. We also pray pray for all those who passed during 2021 and those who grieve.
May our Lady Health of the Sick pray for us and may St. Andrew and St. Margaret protect us.

 Prayer to St. Roch
O God, who promised Saint Roch by an angel,
That all who have recourse to him should
Have nothing to fear from illness and disease.
Grant, we beseech you, that through his
Intercession, we may be delivered from all dangers of soul
And body. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen
(Cf. St. Roch’s Prayer book) To be prayed at all parish Masses
Our Father … Hail Mary… Glory be…
Prayer to St. Michael he Archangel
St. Michael Archangel defend us in the day of battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
