Words of Light and Hope from Sue Page, LLM
Quote “Prayer is a mystery! But that does not mean it is beyond us!
Lord, We confess that at times our awareness of you is faint;
Our experience of You is too often shallow;
Our commitment to You can be half-hearted;
And our love for You remains weak.
And yet we sense that it is in those honest moments in prayer, that we come closest to You;
Somehow we are at our most real…..
We receive more of Your Grace; and that we are becoming a little more like You.
We become our best selves.
Thank you Loving Father!
“See what love the Father has given us; that we should be called children of God…and that is what we are!
1 John 3:1
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens; a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance” …..God made the good as well as the other!!
“The source of love is deep in us and we can help others realise a lot of happiness. One word, one action, one thought can reduce another person’s suffering and bring that person joy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist guru who died last month
No peace among the nations without peace among religions.
No peace among the religions without dialogue between the religions.
No dialogue between the religions without investigation of the foundations of the religions
In order to unite with one another we must love one another;
In order to love one another we must know one another;
In order to know one another, we must go and meet one another.
Cardinal Mercier 1926
You are never far from us,
You are always close to us,
You never hide your face from us.
Help us, help Your Church, help the world, to live without fear and worry.
Teach us to recognise and to know
That You are always in the boat of our life
