Winter in the Soul

Monday, January 25th, 2016

Ave Maria Meditation

Now it is Christ’s will to grow in us, gradually, gently, assimilating our lives to himself. There will be seasons in which we feel no stir of the life within us and see nothing but the earth’s hard crust. Then the daily conquest of sin will be as exacting as the daily pulling up of weeds that grow as fast as they are pulled.
 +
Every honest Catholic knows how useless it sometimes feels to go on day after day finding the same sins cropping up in the examination of conscience, week after week confessing the same sin the same number of times! He feels it is useless, but knows that he does it so that when at last the supernatural life pierces the hard ground, it will not be choked.

(click on photos for full image)

It began as just another day at our friary in Toodyay, Western Australia but then we caught this little guy trying to get in to our retreat house. He claimed he just wanted to spend some time “praying”. We doubted his intentions, and took some photos for the police. We asked him to leave, and placed him in some bushes away from the building.

We decided not to press charges.

Prayer for the Unborn

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Ave Maria Meditations

Pope Benedict’s Prayer for the Unborn: 

Lord Jesus, You who faithfully visit and fulfill with your Presence the Church and the history of men; You who in the miraculous Sacrament of your Body and Blood render us participants in divine Life and allow us a foretaste of the joy of eternal Life; We adore and bless you.  Prostrated before You, source and lover of Life, truly present and alive among us, we beg you: Reawaken in us respect for every unborn life, make us capable of seeing in the fruit of the maternal womb the miraculous work of the Creator, open our hearts to generously welcoming every child that comes into life.
+
Bless all families, sanctify the union of spouses, render fruitful their love. Accompany the choices of legislative assemblies with the light of your Spirit,so that peoples and nations may recognize and respect the sacred nature of life, of every human life.
