Men in black: Vanguards of the Faith.

Men in black.

Men in black.

This is the letter which appeared in today’s Telegraph from a thousand English priests:

After centuries of persecution Catholics have, in recent times, been able to be members of the professions and participate fully in the life of this country.

Legislation for same sex marriage, should it be enacted, will have many legal consequences, severely restricting the ability of Catholics to teach the truth about marriage in their schools, charitable institutions or places of worship.

It is meaningless to argue that Catholics and others may still teach their beliefs about marriage in schools and other arenas if they are also expected to uphold the opposite view at the same time.

The natural complementarity between a man and a woman leads to marriage, seen as a lifelong partnership. This loving union – because of their physical complementarity – is open to bringing forth and nurturing children. This is what marriage is. That is why marriage is only possible between a man and a woman.  Marriage, and the home, children and family life it generates, is the foundation and basic building block of our society.
We urge Members of Parliament not to be afraid to reject this legislation now that its consequences are more clear.

The signatories are here 

I take my hat off to these leaders of the Faith, for having the courage to say what needs to be said in a united way. It gives me courage too. ‘Thank you’ to all of the signatories. We will follow by your example.

This post is another message to me to carry on with my quest to feel Jesus when in prayer. Thank you BILTRIX!
I am reading this book, The Better Part: A Christ-Centered Resource for Personal Prayer by Fr. John Bartunek.

I found it on this blog http://rcspiritualdirection.com/blog/ What a fantastic buy! It has opened my heart and mind to being close to the Lord through daily meditation. I’ve been thirsting for this information for so long, this book has done it for me. I bought the Kindle edition, but I’d like to recommend that if you are interested in it buy the hard copy. It’s a book to have and to hold. I can’t wait for my copy to arrive.
The Better Part equips Christians with the resources they need to, “set of into the deep” to enter into a personal, intimate conversation with Christ. Father Bartunek Begins his book with a short prayer primer, an exposition of the basics of Christian prayer that is worth the price of the book by itself. The rest of the book contains guided meditations on the Gospels with a liberal sprinkling of quotes from the Doctors and Fathers of the Church. The book contains the entire text off all four Gospels taken from the Jerusalem Bible (an excellent and very approachable translation). Each unit is meant as a stepping off point. While reading and reflecting on each unit would be of great benefit to anyone, using them as a starting point for your own conversation with Christ is the ultimate goal.


Three ways to know that God is talking to us in prayer:
