THE PARISH OF BLESSED CARLO ACUTIS WOLVERHAMPTON
Founded 15th December 2020
O God, our Father, thank you for giving us Carlo,
a model of life for young people,
and a message of love for all.
His love for your Son, Jesus, in the Eucharist,
was his source of strength and his ‘highway to heaven’.
You gave him Mary, as beloved Mother,
and through the Rosary
he sang the praises of her tenderness.
Help us to imitate him by confirming our faith,
nurturing our hope
and strengthening our charity.
Accept his prayer for us.
Look above all upon the poor,
whom he loved and assisted
and through his intercession, may our parish become
a vibrant community of missionary disciples,
dedicated to the fruitful building of your Kingdom.
We ask this through Christ our Lord,

Above is a reconstruction of how Caesaria Philippi would have looked when Jesus visited it in today's Gospel. It was the source of the river Jordan and the temple complex was dedicated to the pagan god Pan. It is here that Jesus asks the disciples "who do you say I am?"
