Prayer #3 – Silence

Fri, 19 Dec 2014

In the first post in this series, we cautioned against falling into the trap of doing more and more of the things that don't work. This is an important point, but it throws up a crucial question:How do you tell the difference between something not working, and something that hasn't taken hold yet? There...

In the first of our series of short thoughts on prayer, I want to start by cautioning against falling into 'the time trap'. This is the fallacy which says that the more time for prayer we factor into a programme, the better that is. Or, more to the point, it"s about thinking that time makes up for the...

One thing we get asked about a lot on this site, and one thing there is a great deal of confusion about is the Eucharistic Prayers for Masses with Children. The Awesome Catholic Leader (Aussie Catholic publication) had a great article, which we have reproduced in full…

The giving of the Spirit to the new people of God crowns the mighty acts of the Father in salvation history.

A brilliant Pentecost piece from Busted Halo:

Reflections On Dietrich Bonhoeffer (From Busted Halo) (PNG, 19 Kb, 277x153)

Years ago, I was asked a rather odd question – if the Catholic Church started canonising non-Catholics, which of them would you like to see made saints? It"s almost certainly never going to happen, but it"s still an interesting question. These days, I guess the prime candidate would be Brother...

Recently Busted Halo (great site, as we keep saying!) had a question about which books are good to read for introducing people to scripture. Here"s what they answered:

Great piece from Busted Halo. Here"s a slice…
