Fr. Gerry Clarke SJ
God knocks on our door and sometimes we are slow to let Him in! But with the help of wise teachers and good friends we can begin to open the door.
Yesterday we had the second in our series of Saturday Coffee Mornings: Springtime Spirituality. This time we listened to Michelle Russell who is a counsellor and spiritual director and she explored with us the Serenity Prayer. This was the favourite prayer of a very influential priest when I was in school, Fr. Joe Brennan SJ and he often used to quote it during religion class. I’d say it’s one of those things that you take with you for life so that, while you might not appreciate it when you first hear it, you are opened to hear it in later life when the time is right.
Thanks to all who have donated to the Church through our website. Your generous contributions help in the running expenses of the Church and are greatly appreciated, especially in this difficult time.
You can know donate online in three easy steps. For more details visit our website and click the red DONATE button.
Pray with Pope Francis
Pope’s prayer intention for February: For women who are victims of violence
Today, there continue to be women who suffer violence. Psychological violence, verbal violence, physical violence, sexual violence.
It’s shocking how many women are beaten, insulted, and raped.
The various forms of ill-treatment that many women suffer are acts of cowardice and a degradation of all humanity. Of men and of all humanity.
The testimonies of the victims who dare to break their silence are a cry for help that we cannot ignore.
We must not look the other away.
Let us pray for women who are victims of violence, that they may be protected by society and have their sufferings considered and heeded by all.
