Spiritual Communion Prayer
3rd Sunday of Easter - 18th Abril 2021
Fr. Gerry Clarke SJ
Be open to the possibility that there is another way of looking at life than the scientific way of looking at life. Be open to a different interpretation of suffering than simply seeing it as pure evil to be avoided at all costs. And don’t fall into the trap if thinking that only what can be proved scientifically is truth.
Being part of a church is sharing the journey with men and women who seek the truth not scientifically or blindly for that matter, but in a different way. I always feel that Gospel Music offers a different path to truth. Founded on the assurance that we are good, that we have integrity. That we are loved and good, struggling but courageous, hesitant yet hopeful.
