When Things Don’t Get Better: Finding God in Unhappiness
Last edited 19th November 2014

Unhappiness is a cross. It makes us feel inadequate. It robs us of our awe and wonder at the beautiful life God has blessed us with. Often, the things that leave us feeling this way are out of control, fueled by our deepest doubts and fears. How we react to such things, however, is completely up to us. We can approach lack of joy as a curse and allow it to plunge us deeper into the darkness. Or we can seek purpose in our suffering and reach toward God’s light, trusting it’s there even if we can’t see it.

Why We Pray for the Departed in November
Last edited 5th November 2014

St Paul writes that each of the baptised are part of the Body of Christ, and Jesus is the Head of the Body. Once people die and leave this earth, we are still connected with the souls who are departed as they are still part of the Body of Christ - we remain spiritually connected to them. So during the month of November, let us pray for those who have died. They are depending on our prayers!

Having an Attitude of Gratitude
Last edited 3rd November 2014

I’m struck by the connection between prayer and thanksgiving, and how easily it can be missed. I remember as a child learning to include thanksgiving in the ‘recipe’ of my prayer – yet somehow it has often become a neglected ingredient.

Saint John Paul II on the Holy Rosary
Last edited 24th October 2014

We are now in the final of October – the month of the Holy Rosary. Saint John Paul II, whose feast day we celebrated on 22 October, called the Rosary a "sweet chain which unites us to God, a bond of love which unites us to the angels, a tower of salvation against the assaults of Hell, a safe port in our universal shipwreck."

Last edited 22nd October 2014

The only thing that makes a story worth telling is the underlying and fundamental certainty that life is worth living.
