Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, let me sow pardon; where there is doubt, let me sow faith; where there is despair, let me give hope; where there is darkness, let me bring light; where there is sadness, let me give joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may try not to be comforted, but to comfort; not to be understood, but to understand; not to be loved, but to love.  Because it is giving that we receive; it is in forgiving that we are forgiven, and it is in dying that we rise to eternal life.

Rosary

Month of October - The Holy Rosary

The Holy Rosary is a beautiful and important prayer.  It has become very popular again amongst many people.  The word "rosary" comes from Latin meaning garland of roses.  The rose is one of the flowers that is used to symbolise the Blessed Virgin.  It is a wonderful Marian devotion for everyone. It's a biblical form of prayer with each decade being recited in honour of the mysteries associated with the life of Jesus and the Blessed Virgin.  During October, and throughout the year, you are encouraged to make time to stop and pray meditating on these mysteries and considering what you are learning to practise through the virtue that is being specially taught to you by each mystery.  The five decades can be said throughout the day or all at the same time.  The Rosary is an important prayer for us all and to find out more please visit The Holy Rosary, click here.

Heart Prayer


The Light of the World

"This image was originally painted by the world-famous artist, William Holman Hunt in 1900 and is titled ‘The Light of the World’. Every parish in England and Wales has received a copy.  It is hoped that they will be used to encourage people to pray in their homes and also as a source of grace and consolation to those who are not Catholics but wish to prayerfully sit with the Image.

‘A sermon in a frame,’ is one way this painting has been described such is the richness of its imagery. Please take a moment to observe and reflect on this. To find out more click here ...

 

Canonisation of Two Popes Do not be afraid!  Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure.  He alone can give full meaning to life, he alone is the centre of history.  Live by him!

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential.  Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.”
