We Are Showered With Gifts

As we enter into dialogue with Christ in prayer so we come to know the truth of his mission and his meaning, for we are showered with gifts, gifts of healing, so necessary for those who have incurable disease, the gift of hope so very precious to the hopeless, the gift of love, which sparkles even in the bleakest moments, the gift of mercy both for ourselves and each other, we grow in understanding and our confidence builds in the love of God here with us, keeping us safe and coming to our aid at every turn life.

For his meaning was and ever shall be love without end. Ame

Led by Love

When we don’t know what to do, we turn to God in prayer and ask that He leads us in love. We don’t need to know exactly what to ask for, we just trust that God will bless us with what is right for us and place our hearts with Him, that we might feel His love.

No Words

Her pain is terrible today, her tears a fire, it is impossible to see the soft summer morning’s beauty, the gentle shadows, such is her agony. Another day lost. I have run out of words to pray.

You are Valuable

IN HONOUR OF ARCHBISHOP OSCAR ROMERO WHO IS TO BE MADE A SAINT TODAY.

Shot in the heart, by the USA backed military, during El Salvador's civil war, Oscar Romero's martyrdom in 1980 has had an enormous influence upon my life.

Here he is, very much echoing what we say on Stonebird about how precious you are and how your presence matters, even if you cannot do anything, move, communicate or think :

"The transcendence that the church preaches is not alienation; it is not going to heaven to think about eternal life and forget about the problems on earth. It’s a transcendence from the human heart. It is entering into the reality of a child, of the poor,of those wearing rags, of the sick, of a hovel,of a shack. It is going to share with them. And from the very heart of misery, of this situation, to transcend it, to elevate it, to promote it, and to say to them, “You aren’t trash. You aren’t marginalized.” It is to say exactly the opposite, “You are valuable.”
