Good News

‘It is Love that brings people back to life’ (Dostoyevsky)

Education

Lord, You teach us truth, Lord, You guide us in the way of love. Lord, You lead us to the joys of heaven.

The Baptism of Jesus

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

A Reflection on the approach of Christmas

This time is a divine wake-up call for us all.

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.'

Preparing the way

‘You can only see properly with your heart. Eyes don't see through to the essential.'

Being Awake

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

Christ the King

Thought: ‘In the evening of our lives we shall be examined on love’. (St. John of the Cross)’

Remembering

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

Thanking

‘You cannot cure or be cured unless you love’ (Catherine de Huek Doherty)

Saints

(Tuesday if the feast of All Saints) Thought: At the very depth of ourselves, we are on the threshold to the reality of God
