8th October – Memorial of Our Lady

Today I had the privilege of giving a parish day of recollection in Aghyaran, Co Tyrone. It consisted mainly of three 45 minute talks on JESUS, THE FACE OF THE FATHER’S MERCY; CONFESSION – WHY BOTHER?; MARY OUR SPIRITUAL MOTHER. There was also Mass and Confessions along with a hearty lunch and good conversations with good people. A very rewarding experience.

“Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift of himself.”
