Back to Church Sunday at St Cléments Curepipe saw more than a hundred people in church said Rev Dr O Simon. A considerable increase in the normal size of the congregation - there were exactly 100 communicants. Afterwards delicious refreshments, "made with love", were served outside the church. People stayed around and chatted for a long time; we were blessed with fine weather .... he sent pictures of the event.

[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Psa 50:1 The Almighty God, the LORD, speaks; he calls to the whole earth from east to west.
Psa 50:2 God shines from Zion, the city perfect in its beauty.
Psa 50:3 Our God is coming, but not in silence; a raging fire is in front of him, a furious storm around him.
Psa 50:4 He calls heaven and earth as witnesses to see him judge his people.
Psa 50:5 He says, "Gather my faithful people to me, those who made a covenant with me by offering a sacrifice."
Psa 50:6 The heavens proclaim that God is righteous, that he himself is judge.
Psa 50:7 "Listen, my people, and I will speak; I will testify against you, Israel. I am God, your God.
Psa 50:8 I do not reprimand you because of your sacrifices and the burnt offerings you always bring me.
Psa 50:9 And yet I do not need bulls from your farms or goats from your flocks;
Psa 50:10 all the animals in the forest are mine and the cattle on thousands of hills.
Psa 50:11 All the wild birds are mine and all living things in the fields.
Psa 50:12 "If I were hungry, I would not ask you for food, for the world and everything in it is mine.
Psa 50:13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats?
Psa 50:14 Let the giving of thanks be your sacrifice to God, and give the Almighty all that you promised.
Psa 50:15 Call to me when trouble comes; I will save you, and you will praise me."
Psa 50:16 But God says to the wicked, "Why should you recite my commandments? Why should you talk about my covenant?
Psa 50:17 You refuse to let me correct you; you reject my commands.
Psa 50:18 You become the friend of every thief you see, and you associate with adulterers.
Psa 50:19 "You are always ready to speak evil; you never hesitate to tell lies.
Psa 50:20 You are ready to accuse your own relatives and to find fault with them.
Psa 50:21 You have done all this, and I have said nothing, so you thought that I am like you. But now I reprimand you and make the matter plain to you.
Psa 50:22 "Listen to this, you that ignore me, or I will destroy you, and there will be no one to save you.
Psa 50:23 Giving thanks is the sacrifice that honors me, and I will surely save all who obey me."
