Here is the message from Bishop Patrick seen by all the Catholic Schools in the Diocese on Friday last.
Our Bishop presents a simple and profound catechesis, based on his own daily experience of Adoration. Indeed, he gives us a deep and honest insight into his own spirituality. So much of what he says resonates very deeply with my own experience.
Although this was produced for our schools, there is so much here that can help any Catholic who wants to pray better, who sometimes finds it difficult to pray, and yet who knows that prayer is the lifeblood of any authentic Christian life. Isn't that all of us!
Whatever your age, please do watch this video. It takes less than ten minutes.
Please remember the forthcoming opportunities for adoration in our own parishes:
- Every Saturday evening, OLOL, 4.45 - 5.15pm (with Sacrament of Reconciliation)
- Tuesday, 28 November, St Charles Church, 1.10 - 2.15pm (with children from St Charles School)
- Monday, 18 December, OLOL, 6.30 - 8pm (with two priests available for Sacrament of Reconciliation, and with Prayers for Vocations)
