  • PRAYER FOR ENGLAND

    We come to you, most holy Virgin. We are children of England, your dowry. Keep us faithful to the Gospel of Jesus your Son. Keep us in the unity of the Catholic faith and the power of hope.

    Mother of love, protect all the families of England. Help them to stay together. Give them the happiness of loving and passing on life.

    You are the Mother of Christ, our Saviour. Open our hearts to people who are suffering. May each of us offer signs of friendship and welcome to people who are less well off than us.

    Faithful Virgin, help us in our lives. Help us to choose the way in life that Jesus wants us to follow. May we face the problems of life today, together with people of other Churches and religions.

    You praised the great things done by the Lord. You sang about how God kept his promises to the people of Israel. We bless you because you believed in the Word of God and in his Love which lasts for ever and ever.

    Amen.

    Our Lady of Walsingham, pray for us.

    God our Loving Father, pour out on us afresh the gifts of your Holy Spirit. Open our ears to hear your Word, open our eyes to see your presence, open our minds to understand your Wisdom and open our hearts to be more available for your mission so that strengthened by your grace we can truly be a sign and instrument of your presence in our world today. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

  • “From the age of fifteen, dogma has been the fundamental principle of my religion: I know no other religion; I cannot enter into the idea of any other sort of religion; religion, as a mere sentiment, is to me a dream and a mockery.” Blessed John Henry Newman.

How do you feel about evangelising?

Pontifical homepage for the Year of Faith: Pope Francis and the Year of Faith.

I came across the Pontifical homepage for the Year of Faith,  and knew that it’s a must- share. I can’t believe that I hadn’t looked for it sooner. Clear, informative and educational links.

The Holy Father Francis spoke also about the Year of Faith in the Meeting with representatives of the Churches and Ecclesial Communities, and other religions. The following is an excerpt from his speech.

“[...]I begin my apostolic ministry,” he continued, “in this year that my venerated predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, with a truly inspired intuition, proclaimed the Year of Faith for the Catholic Church. With this initiative, which I wish to continue and which I hope serves as a stimulus for each of us in our journey of faith, he wanted to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council, proposing a type of pilgrimage to what is essential for every Christian: a personal and transforming relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died and rose again for our salvation. The heart of the Council’s message lies precisely in the desire to proclaim this ever-valid treasure of the faith to the persons of our time.[...]“
(Pope Francis, Audience with representatives of Churches and Ecclesial Communities and of other Religions , Wednesday, 20 march 2013).

So, what is our responsibility going to be in the Coming YEAR OF FAITH ?

Fr. Robert Barron is coming to England this week!

Fr. Rober Barron, the producer of the amazing ‘Catholicism’ dvd series is visiting England as from this week, 25th April until the 4th of May.

Fr. Robert Barron will tour England 25 April-4 May:

On its website, the Shrewsbury Diocese invites Catholics to attend the event in Liverpool:

Fr Robert Barron is a well known American Diocesan Priest – he hosts a weekly programme on EWTN and on Salt and Light TV. He has produced a series of DVD’s called Catholicism. It is being launched in the UK (Durham, Birmingham and Westminster) at the end of April.

Fr Barron is a wonderful speaker and the DVDs present the main teaching of the Catholic faith in a way that is presentable and challenging.

Fr Barron will be coming to the Liverpool Archdiocesan Centre for Evangelisation on Monday 30th April at 7.30pm. He will introduce and present the DVDs. This event is open to anyone – but it will be of special interest to RCIA groups, parents, catechists, teachers and anyone interested in evangelisation and passing on the faith.

There is no charge – just turn up – all welcome.

Further details from Fr Philip Inch, Episcopal Vicar for Evangelisation in the Archdiocese of Liverpool, on 0151 487 9372
