Tonight my beloved and I returned from our monthly prayer group, blessed in the knowledge that our dear friends hold us close when they pray. We felt comforted not only by the Word of God but cosseted and enfolded in His love through the reaching out of this small group of workers in The Vineyard: our wonderful prayer group. This group has opened wide a new door of discovery and understanding for us, about the light of love that Our Lord holds over us.

I came across this video here. The CCC is such an important document, that all Catholics should own one. This comprehensive video gives you the reasons why it’s a good idea and is explicit in its content with regard to why and how it was put together.
The Catholic Faith is explained in detail in the CCC, and warrants further discussion within a parish group context.

This sums up pretty much how I’ve been feeling over the past 10 days or so….I could’n't have put it better myself! (My additions: capitals and bold type)
Pope Francis has filled many of us with Hope. An ancient hope that leadership is both about inspiration and Servanthood. That our Greatest Leader set an example by laying down His Life, and all true leaders are invited to follow the same path perhaps not by shedding their blood yet shedding their own preferences for those they lead and of course serve.
Francesco resonates just as it did in the thirteenth century when both the simplicity of the ascetic’s way of life attracted multitudes to a Church that had often appeared distant from their experiences and aspirations, whilst also creating a New Evangelisation that embraced both poor and rich, yet knit both polarities together in a single goal; to love both God and neighbour.
The years ahead I sense will be years of refreshment and deep renewal in the lived out message of the church and in a simple and comprehensible articulation of the Gospel of Salvation for all. Pax et bonum!
