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.
Sometimes when it comes to spiritual things, it is better to go for quality rather than quantity. Such is the case with this quote of Mother Teresa that I saw on the front page of the ALIVE! newspaper.
“Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift of himself.”
