Points to Ponder

What are your joys and hopes of marriage and family life today?
What are your struggles and fears of marriage and family life today?
How can we better understand marriage as a vocation?
How does your marriage enrich you?
How does your family life enrich you?
In what way, through the abiding presence of God, is your family “salt of the earth and light to the world” and a place of and for handing on our faith?
Any views/suggestions in preparation for Family Synod to Fr. Pyle as soon as possible.

Fourth Sunday of Lent Mediation

John 3:v.14-21

Do you believe that God sent his Son into the world not to condemn you but to save you?

What difference does it make to know that God does not blame you for the death of his Son but desires that you should live freely and fully because of this gift to the world?

You might like to spend some time today with a crucifix or, if your church is open, in the quiet with the Blessed Sacrament. Pray with these world and think of the love God has lavished on humanity but the love and sacrifice of Jesus.

A Mother’s Day Prayer

Lord of all pots and pans and things
Make me a saint by getting meals
And washing up the plates!
