Latin Mass in Menevia.... Sunday 28th July, will be at St Joseph's Cathedral, Swansea at 12 noon.


At that time, Jesus spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves as just, and despised others. 

Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one was a pharisee, and the other a publican. 

The pharisee standing, prayed thus with himself: O God, I give Thee thanks that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers; as also is this publican. 
I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I possess. 

And the publican standing afar off would not so much as lift up his eyes towards heaven, but struck his breast saying: O God, be merciful to me a sinner.

 I say to you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
