Our Eyes

Bodies tire, but eyes are windows to the soul and they are forever eager to see. One of the contrasts between Christianity and Buddhism has to do with the eyes. The Buddhist saint is always depicted with his or her eyes shut, while the Christian saint always has them open. The Buddhist saint has a sleek, harmonious body but the eyes are heavy and sealed with sleep. The Christian saint’s body is wasted to the bone but the eyes are alive, hungry, staring. While the Buddhist’s eyes are focused inward. The Christian’s eyes are staring outwards full of wonder. Ron Rolheiser.

Send Someone Good News this summer.

The term Gospel means Good News – And we all like to hear some Good News.

So why not send some Good News home to friends and family this summer? It’s simple

……. If you’re going on holiday or having a short break this summer, why not say a prayer for a relative or friend (perhaps someone who no longer comes to Mass) or light a candle for them if you visit a cathedral or church …..

….. and then let them know by sending them a postcard, email, text message or tweet that you remembered and prayed for them.

Keep on spreading the Gospel’s Good News!
