Holy Week

‘Mankind would perish if there were no evidence, anytime or anywhere of the divinity of man’ (Gandhi)

Change

‘Love changes everything: how you live and how you die’

The Real You

Following

“He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father and followed Him’”. (Matthew 4 : 20)

The Baptism of Jesus

To be baptised is to be christened, which means to recognize that we have been made like Christ.

Good News

‘Nobody expected him just like that: a baby, a manger in a stable, young parents from a village in the hills. Nobody expected that his first visitors would be shepherds, little thought of in the eyes of the great. Yes he has come; but not as we expected.

Being Awake

Advent calls us to wake up, to arise from our sleep. To shake off the dust of routine, habit, custom… and to prepare to let Christ come alive in our lives.

Remembering

‘Those we have loved and have died are never really lost; we carry them with us in our hearts’

Saints

At the very depth of ourselves, we are on the threshold to the reality of God

Prayer

(Next week is One World Week - Prayers for Peace) God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer. (Mother Teresa)

Human Rights

‘This is the sum of pity; do nothing to others that would cause you pain if done to you.’ (Hindu teaching)
