We invite you to make a ‘Sacred Space’, praying here and now, as you visit our website, with the help of the Gospel of the day and on-screen guidance.

SOMETHING TO THINK AND PRAY ABOUT THIS WEEK

Belonging

‘Precisely because of his life experience, St. Ignatius of Loyola saw with great clarity that every Christian is involved in a battle that defines his or her life. It is a struggle to overcome the temptation of closing in on ourselves, so that the love of the Father can make its home in us. When we make room for the Lord who rescues us from our self-sufficiency, we open up to all of creation and every creature. We become channels of the Father’s life and love. Only then do we realise what life truly is: a gift of the Father who loves us deeply and desires that we belong to him and to each other.’ Pope Francis

Excerpted from the foreword to First Belong To God by Austen Ivereigh


We Remember At This Time…

In July, we celebrate the feast day of St. Benedict of Nursia, who is considered to be the father of Western monasticism. May we take this opportunity to pray for all those in religious and monastic life, particularly those who have been called to live lives of radical simplicity, poverty, solitude, prayer, and silence. Lord, thank you for all those you have set apart in this way, and for their willingness to say yes for the sake of Your kingdom, offering their lives to you, and for all of us, in prayer. Bless them today and always. Amen.
