When I speak spontaneously I do it in Spanish, because I don't know the English language. May I do it? Thank you very much. This Fr Mark, a good translator.

First of all, a sad piece of news. Yesterday, as Mass was about to start, a piece of scaffolding fell and, upon falling, hit a...

Pope Francis At Vargihna 300x200 (JPEG, 18 Kb, 300x200)

Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created...

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...

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...

Prayer #3 – Silence

Fri, 19 Dec 2014

A few years back I went to Taize with some friends. I loved it there, but one thing I struggled with at first were the times of silence. A key part of the prayer times is the invitation to spend a few minutes silently with your own thoughts. As the week goes on, the time increases.For the first few days...

This is one of the oldest tricks in the youth ministry playbook, and one of the best. It's a great way to get young people praying.You will need a candle that can be passed round – preferably one in a jar. Sit the group in a circle and begin your time of prayer with the Sign of the Cross. Explain...

Prayer #6 – Letter To God

Fri, 19 Dec 2014

One simple idea which can really help young people to pray is to invite them to write a letter to God… Set an atmosphere, get them relaxed and quiet and give them pens and paper. Put some gentle background music on and invite them to write a letter to God. It can be about anything they want: Asking...

This is an old worship leaders' method, and it's very effective. It's sort of a combination of personal prayer and collective Praise & Worship.During a reflective or prayerful time get the young people singing a worship song. Preferably the sort of song that's fairly repetitive. At key points in...

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...
