Welcome to the Catholic Parish of Applecross, we are a vibrant faithful and welcoming community. Visitors and new parishioners are always welcome to join us in celebrating the Eucharist. Our hope is that together we can continue to build the Kingdom of God, not only within our Parish community but within our society. We also hope that you will find information and resources that will help you personally and enable you to play a part in making Jesus real, loved and followed in whatever corner of the world you happen to be.

Hopefully together we will be able to walk the path that Christ calls us to and so fulfill the essence of the Rule of St Benedict, “The Love of Christ must come before all else”.

We hope you find our website helpful. We are open to any comments you would like to offer, that will help us more fully live out the mission of Christ in this part of the world.

28th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year B (14th October, 2018)

Reflection: Greg Sunter
Jesus reminds us in this gospel that to join him in bringing about the reign of God requires absolute commitment and a willingness to give up that which is most precious to us. The rich man who approached Jesus was genuine in his desire to fulfil all the requirements of the Law to attain eternal life. Jesus quoted to him all the commandments that deal with right relationships with others. The man is able to tick these off and assure Jesus that he has been doing this since childhood – a pretty big claim in the first place! Then Jesus ‘looked steadily at him and loved him’ – he looked on him with the eyes of love; the eyes that see to the heart of a person, and in that look knew what was most important to the man. Jesus could tell by his dress no doubt that the man was wealthy and so it is this aspect of the man’s life that Jesus chooses to challenge him about. This gospel shouldn’t necessarily be read as a condemnation of wealth – rather, it is the man’s inability to surrender his wealth that Jesus challenges. Jesus sees to the heart of the man and asks if he is willing to give up that which is most important in his life. The man is unable to do what Jesus asks of him and goes away sad. Why sad? He’s sad because he knows that he has been tested and failed. He knows that what he genuinely desired was within his reach but he needed to let go of his position, his status, his wealth, to be able to grasp what he desired in both hands.
