Have you seen Sunday Plus? Free month's trial available for your parish!
Sunday Plus is a bright and upbeat weekly bulletin for today’s Catholic. Covering a multitude of topics, Plus helps readers engage their faith with the often challenging reality of day-to-day life.
In this week's thought-provoking edition, David Wells, Director of Adult Religious Education for the Diocese of Plymouth, asks us to think about perfection: not about getting everything right, but being generous to those who irritate us – who may be God’s training ground for our own perfection. Click here to view this Sunday's Sunday Plus.

Bidding Prayers for Sunday 27th July 2014
On this Day of Prayer for Life, we present our prayers to God, the Creator and sustainer of all life.
Let us pray for our Holy Father, Pope Francis, that he may lead the world in its ongoing struggle to live life to the full, in peace, harmony and mutual understanding.
Let us pray for all those who work to protect and defend the lives of the helpless, the marginalised and the endangered, that human life may be respected and cherished, especially in areas of violence and bloodshed.
Let us pray for eternal rest for all those who lost their lives in both the Malaysia Airlines disaster and the Air Algerie plane crash, and for comfort and strength for all who loved them.
Let us pray for peace in all the troubled areas of the world and especially for an end to the loss of life in Israel and the Gaza Strip: that the Holy Land might truly be a source of life and hope to all peoples, regardless of religion, ethnicity or gender.
Let us pray for families at the beginning of the school holidays, that their love for each other will grow through their increased time together and be an unending source of joy.
Lord of our life and our love, embraced by your Spirit of Love, we offer you our prayers through Jesus, your Son. Amen.
