What is a Will?

A Will is a legal document that confirms how you wish your
property, personal possessions, savings and investments
to be distributed upon your death. For a Will to be valid the
maker of the Will must have the necessary mental capacity
at the time they make their Will and be signed by them in
the presence of two independent witnesses. It is usual to
include the appointment of executors who will have the
duty of proving your Will and ensuring your wishes are
carried out.

A Will can also: Furthermore, partners who have been living

your estate passes to your chosen beneficiary.
Without a valid Will in place you will die ‘intestate’
and the rules of intestacy will specify how your
estate will be distributed.

Should your estate be distributed under the rules
of intestacy, it could be given to relatives you
neither know nor like and in some circumstances
your estate can even pass to the Crown.

The Twelve Days of Christmas

The song, The Twelve Days of Christmas is an English Christmas
carol. From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not
permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era
wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics.
It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden
meaning known only to members of the Church. Each element in the
carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could
remember. To fit the number scheme, when you reach number 9,
representing the Fruits of the Holy Ghost, the originator combined 6 to
make 3, taking the 6 fruits that were similar: the fruit in each
parenthesis is the fruit that was not named separately. There are
actually Twelve Fruits of the Holy Ghost.
The ‘True Love’ in the song is not a smitten boy or girlfriend, but Jesus Christ, because truly Love
was born on Christmas Day. The partridge in the pear tree also represents Him because that bird is
willing to sacrifice its life if necessary to protect its young by feigning injury to draw away predators.
According to the HANDBOOK OF CATHOLIC SACRAMENTALS…
The two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments
The three French hens stood for faith, hope, and love.
The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The five golden rings represented the first five books of the Old Testament, which describe man’s fall
into sin and the great love of God in sending a Savior.
The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.
Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit – Prophesy, Serving,
Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.
The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.
Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit – Charity, Joy, Peace, Patience
(Forbearance), Goodness (Kindness), Mildness, Fidelity, Modesty, Continency (Chastity).
The ten lords a-leaping were the Ten Commandments.
The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful Apostles.
The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in The Apostles’ Creed.

A Big THANK YOU from the Weekday Servers

Well the Interregnum is now behind us, although at the time of writing this the Induction
had not taken place so fingers crossed.
As you know we pride ourselves here at St Saviours in that we have a daily celebration of
Mass and so through Fr Nick’s organisational skills we have continued the tradition with a
rota of Priests from far and wide as well as our team members.
We, the weekday team, have had to be on the alert to the various idiosyncrasies of the less
familiar Priests as indeed they themselves have to ours. It has been pleasing to note that
attendances at the weekday morning services have continued and in some cases
increased during this period.
Well from John (Monday Tuesday and Friday); Brian (Wednesday) and Jackie (Thursday
Saturday and 8am Sunday), THANK YOU Fathers Chris (the elder); Charles; John; David
Mussen; David Charles; Tom; Tony; Tim; Adam and Philippe
It has been a privilege and a joy to worship and serve with you at the altar. Bless you all.
