The Beatitudes Lent 2015 - during Lent, we often voluntarily sacrifice something that, though good, pleasurable or enjoyable in itself, is offered up to the Lord as part of our self-denial.  We re-train our appetites and direct them towards an even higher good, a more noble goal.  Alternatively, we can exercise our will-power by talking on something extra that is spiritually beneficial to ourselves but also to the advantage of our neighbour.  By these Lenten resolutions, we stand in solidarity with our Lord who suffered for our sake. 

When we are living the Beatitudes we are blessed - we know happiness.  Lent is a time to take a few small steps towards God and experience God taking giant leaps towards you.  As we move towards Easter Sunday, consider the Beatitudes and what they mean.  It is a season for forgiveness, mercy and renewal.  A time to make a commitment to be closer to God and to experience happiness in life.


Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in Heaven.
(Matthew 5:3-11)

Walk With Me: A Lenten Journey of Prayer 2015


"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

"Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

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.  It has been described as ‘a sermon in a frame,’ such is the richness of its imagery. Take a few moments from your busy life to to observe and reflect on this painting. To find out more click here.


Love is always patient and kind: it is never jealous; love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offence, and is not resentful.  Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins but delights in truth, it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.  Love does not come to an end.  (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
