Welcome to the Website of
Our Lady of Fatima Parish, White City.

"Come to me all you who are burdened
and I will give you rest."

 

Our parish is part of the Archdiocese of Westminster and is situated in the heart of London. It is home to a vibrant, exciting and culturally diverse community, sharing our lives and growing in faith together. Our website aims to provide a taste of all the many different groups in our parish, all of which are centred firmly in The Good News of Christ. We strive to provide a loving welcome to all who pass through our parish, but nothing can substitute for coming and sharing in our worship with us.
 
THIRTIETH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR

WEDNESDAY MORNING MASS AT 9.00AM this week. Morning Prayer at 8.45am.

LOVE – THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT

     In today’s Gospel, Jesus shows us the supremacy of love over any law. With love, the observance of the Law is holy and enjoyable. Without love, it is slavery and a heavy burden, impossible to fulfil. Jesus sums up the Ten Commandments in love of God and neighbour. If we genuinely love God and our neighbour, then we will fulfil God’s commandments out of true respect rather than fear of punishment. As St John puts it, “perfect love casts out fear; for fear has to do with punishment.” (1Jn 4:18) Our love for God and neighbour is simply a response to the love we firstly receive from God. “We love because He first loved us.” (1Jn 4:19) But our response to God’s love cannot be complete without the love of neighbour. The two loves are the two sides of the same coin; one cannot separate the first from the other.
According to St. Paul, love is the perfection and fulfilment of the Law. “Love does no wrong to a neighbour; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.” (Rom 13:10) This confirms what Jesus taught His disciples: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” (Jn 14:15) Yes, if we love God, we will keep His commandments; and His commandment is that we should love Him and our neighbour. Simply put, love is the greatest and the only commandment expressed in two directions; horizontal and vertical, towards God and neighbour. This is what the cross symbolises for us where God and man meet, heaven and earth come together. This is the power of love that united heaven and earth; and the Lord wants us to carry on with that two dimensional love encounter. If our love does not embrace these two dimensions, it is not true love at all. Therefore, let our love of God be clearly shown in the love we give to our neighbour.

With blessings and prayers,

Fr Ephrem, Fr Richard and all the parish team.
