Episode 3 ‘That Which Nothing Greater can be Thought – The Ineffable Mystery of God’
Join us on Tuesday 3 March 8pm in the Parish Centre Board Room
Silence is a powerful form of prayer
Prayer is conversation with God
Conversation is a mixture of talking and listening
Silence from us gives God a chance to speak too.
Reflection: Try using silence as our prayer for ONE hour this week by being still in God’s presence, no books, no words, just silence. God will be delighted to talk to us in the silence of our hearts.
Trócaire’s Lenten campaign 2015 highlights the injustice faced by many in the developing world. Mahlet (13) is the little girl from Ethiopia who appears on this year’s Trócaire Box. Mahlet represents the many children in the developing world who are suffering because their families can’t grow enough food to feed them. Find out how to help at www.trocaire.org/lent.
