  • A Christmas Gift: Quenching Thirst in Kenya
    Now that we’re into the holiday hustle and bustle, it’s a good time to step back and remember the blessings we have — starting with the most basic things we might overlook.  Take clean water, for example.  In your home you can go to any faucet, turn it on and, voilà, clean water! You can […]

    "We hear variations of the lie that we are 'not enough.' And yet we have the precise gifts for our particular family, for our exact calling, for this specific cross, in this time, at this place, for this season.  God promises only daily bread, and it is made to order.  We do not have the […]
  • Advent Prepares Us for the Light of Christ
    The events that come to mind when we say “Christmas,” “Easter,” and “Pentecost” are so tremendous that their commemoration cannot be celebrated in a single day each.

  • Enjoying the Feast of the Holy Trinity
    The weather in London today finally broke into just above 20 degrees centigrade, or just tipping 70 if you are using old money. It was a beautiful day to celebrate the feast of the Most Holy Trinity. This weekend and last, I have been helping at St Bede’s, Clapham Park. In a most pastorally sensitive […]
  • Blessing of the New Painting of St Bede at Clapham Park
    This morning, the parish priest at Clapham Park, Fr Marcus Holden, blessed a new picture of the parish's patron, Saint Bede, painted by James Tildsley. It is sited over a recently installed side altar near the rear of the Church. The altar itself was acquired from Antique Church Furnishings. The website gives the information that […]
  • Rogationtide and the Prayer of Petition
    Rogationtide is traditionally a time of prayer in preparation for the Ascension; England was one of the earliest countries to spread the custom. In Rome, fasting but not abstinence was observed, a concession to the continuing joy of Easter. Challoner mentions abstinence in the 1775 edition of his Garden of the Soul, but it had […]

  • Cardinal Biffi on the Antichrist
    ",,,,  the Antichrist presents himself as a pacifist, ecologist and ecumenist. He ... seeks the consensus of all the Christian confessions, conceding something to each one.""The crowds follow him, except for tiny groups of Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants.
